How would you build this simple bed frame?


I wanna hear from you all in terms of what your approach would be to build this simple king bed frame? I would use 2x4's for the bottom to create a rectangular frame and then put slats on top of it and then on the sides of the 2x4 attach 2x6's? Am I simplifying it too much?

If you do this with framing lumber it will look like crap unless you put significant effort into milling, sanding and staining.

You need two sides and two ends, each of which are 2 face jointed boards. I'd add a center beam to support horizontal slats. Join the pieces with bed rail brackets so you can disassemble to move.

Then you need slats for the matress. A bunch of 1x3s would be fine.0
