« Part 5: Night Stands Finished Part 6 of New Bedroom series no next part

I was asked a while ago if I could make a set of plans for the Mission Bed in this series. It took a while but I have finished it, and am making it available free of charge to anyone who would like it. Just click the link below and it will download to your computer. It’s 47 megs in size, so depending on your connection it might take a little while.
Thanks for your time,

Here’s the link:

nice plans – thanks for developing them. don’t need a bed at the moment, but will file away for the day down the road that I do. very detailed. Better than alot of magazine articles/plans.

Wow, that was unbelievably generous of you! Very nice bed design. Similar to the one I made from

I don’t know how I managed to miss your blog last year, but very well done. I love the details in the new bedroom. Keep up the great work. What’s next?

Thanks, My daughter has been waqnting to build a bed just like this for quite some time. Now we have an awesome set of plans – that’s one step closer.

Todd, long time no see, thanks for the comment.

Mike, I hope your photography is going strong. Thanks for the comment. No one’s build a bed from the plans yet so for all I know you might end up with a crib. I just hope I made them accurately enough.

Cpt Skull, not sure what will be next, either a lamp, a picture frame, or a dresser.

Doug, glad you like them, but remind your daughter that it’s a California King..tell her to measure the room first!
