Ok, the newbie is already asking for help. I have looked every where that I can think of and cannot find a plan (free or pay) for a standard king size sleigh bed, nothing ornate or with intricate carvings. Just something basic, I can usually come up with some embellishments by myself. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Hey Sarge, you said you looked everywhere, but I will ask you to look at WOOD Magazine archives, or search the site becuse I thought thay ran a bedroom series quite a while back that included the type of bed you were looking for. Woodsmith also has a nice catalog of plans. good luck

Try Fine Woodworking magazine – Taunton press. I remember seeing one in there. If you can’t find one in a day or two online I’ll dig up the article for you. all of my mags are still packed away in boxes from my recent move.

Here is the reference for Wood Magazine. It is listed for a queen size bed but is readily adapted to a King by simply lengthening the rails and the raised panels.

In subsequent issues plans for matching accessory pieces were presented.
