Bed

I would like to copy my Ikea bed into Tas Oak one day.

From the beds that I have built, I measure the mattress and work from there.  That will give you your interior dimensions of the frame.  Rockler sells non-mortise bed rail hardware that makes things easier too.

Yeah, Justin's method is what I use, too.

Always start with the mattress size and make sure you design in room to actually be able to get the sheets on the bed once it is built.

If you are using a flat surface for the mattress then this isn't such a big issue.   But I once built a bed where the mattress sits a few inches down within a frame and I got lucky that I made the frame a few inches larger than the mattress dimensions.  If it's too tight a fit somebody will curse you ever time they have to make the bed.

Cheers..........Dan

Festool Domino 500

The first thing I will do is set price aside and focus on the tool and why I bought the Domino. 

      I have orders for a few dining tables and chairs.  I have made one prototype chair, while I have all the tools to make angled…
