Queen Size Folding Bed
End Folding VERSION Now Available …… Plan # 149
After several requests from interested visitors to the site and previous clients I have finally completed the plan for the Queen size Bed-In-A-Box. Very similar in design to the double sized bed with the removable middle side rail which then collapse in on itself for transporting. It amazes me how a few inches added or subtracted changes so many components within a project. I have also addressed an issue that dealt with how to secure the headboard / box lid when it is the bed condition. It is important to note that all of the hinges have to be mounted offset by ¾” in order to allow the parts to close over top or adjacent to each other. In addition I have added a detachable carrying handle, which can be stored on the storage shelf inside the frame when assembled into a bed. For anyone that has the double bed plan the other major change is the slats, there are now two wider slats to make up the extra length of the queen size bed. Happy Woodworking!
