How to make old woodworking tools

Platform bed with storage plans,dark oak wood veneer,diy wood baby gate,wood turning chisel handles - New On 2016>

Yesterday I shared the free plans for the storage bench portion of the Kristy collection bedroom plans.
Make sure to check out Kristy’s bedroom reveal for photos of a beautiful finished Kristy collection bed!
As I’m also in Australia (I think about 700kms from Kristy) I would also appreciate the metric plans. Build this Queen sized platform storage bed (or a Cal King Bed if that’s your preference) and pair it with your favorite headboard for an attractive AND functional storage piece. And if you REALLY like what you see here — I’d LOVE it if you share and pin my posts with ALL your friends!
I’d like to make this but have an idea to do an upholstered version to be similar to a Pottery Barn bed I saw. That's the rough skeleton of 2 of the 3 pieces of our future wonderful storage platform bed! I JUST used an Ana White plan and built a bed for Olivia :) I finished it up last weekend and blogged about it -LOL!
Could you tell me an extremely easy way to convert the measurements down to a full size bed please.


We've casually talked about the plans for it while watching TV, while out to dinner and while falling asleep wishing we didn't have to crawl out of bed from a mattress sitting on the floor :) So needless to say when we finally got started we were well on our way to having made most of the stylistic and functional decisions. The idea that I will no longer have to crawl out of bed from a mattress on the ground is very exciting. A storage bed is kind of huge and we really want to be able to move it easily so the we knew the bed needed to be build in pieces so we could move it around and install it without needing 7 people to move it and possibly knocking down a wall.
There will be several different materials that will build the bed, but like the hutch we built, the inside will be painted cabinet grade plywood, and all the exposed parts will be stained cherry. Our bedroom is not very large and we'd like to eliminate at least one of our dressers so the room doesn't feel so crowded.
We initially wanted the bed to have storage drawers, but at one point we also debated it just having cubbies to make building it easier. But as we were drawing out the plans for it we realized that would make the bed pretty tall.
We like building with cherry because it's strong, looks nice and is less expensive than other stain grade woods.
Our guess is that this project will take about 6 weeks to complete, so hopefully by the end of September or beginning of October we've got a fancy, pretty, amazingly efficient bed frame to move into our bedroom without breaking our backs or needing to rip down any walls.


Including face frames, drawers deep enough for our preference and plus our tallish mattress sitting on top of all of that we were looking at a finished bed height of about 24-28". That doesn't seem that tall, but when you actually put a tape measure up and try to pretend getting into a bed that that's tall (especially for someone who is 5'4") it felt ridiculously tall. Instead we opted for just one row of drawers, but those drawers could now be taller than we initially had planned for. If we stained it that would be that whacking your shoe against it wouldn't result in a big black mark on the side of the bed.
Of course that means that the bed will be more difficult and expensive to build to make it stain grade.
