Floating Bed Frame

July 6 2018

For the last nine years I’ve laid my mattress (well it was more of a two inch foam mattress topper but that’s orthogonal to the point) directly on the floor. Now that we have a permanent residence Sophia decided it was time we own a real bed. Coincidentally I resolved that we should procure a sliding compound miter saw.


9 2x4s

4 2x6s

2 2x12s

1 ¼” thick plywood

We followed this design with a few small tweaks, the two largest of which being excluding a headboard, and expanding the dimensions to fit a king size bed. Initially, we had plans to add a headboard but as the frame came together in the room it was hard to justify the need.
