I want to design them to fit the bed that I built for our bedroom and want to have at least one drawer. So I was busy in my shop, and this is what I came up with! It is a very

simple construction and it is also very easy to change!

Of course, we have a plan for your free print and a step by step instructions to follow along! You can click on the image below or HERE to print your set schedule. The plans for a bed.

I started by cutting and drilling my bag with me Kreg K5. I had to tear down Purebond plywood in Home shopping and then perform cross cuts at home. Initially the sides

and bottom of the bottom board of the headboard. You can see where I drilled holes on the table beneath the bag. You can click on the box below for a link to K5 on Amazon.

and then I attached the bottom of the drawer with my Ryobi Stapler. If you do not have a stapler, you can use the nail ends here. I want to attach a copy with staples,

because it is less likely to pull out the pieces.

Now Casting! The simplest way I believe, to cut and measure the cove molding is started with a piece cut at 45 degrees. Just set your saw at 45. The cap is Miter adjustment saws input.

Next, I queue mitered edges where needed and then mark the other end.

attach-cove-molding

I attach it with wood glue and brad nails.
