Here's an Americanized version of the French empire style. The name "sleigh bed" is derived from the scrolled, sleigh-like head and footboard. This project has the builder using a band saw to achieve the curvature of the legs, no steaming required. Both headboard and footboard are designed with large raised panels for an elegant appearance. Plans help you build either a full size, or queen size bed. We recommend cherry, maple, or birch.
Dimensions: Queen, 63-1/8" wide, 87" long; Full, 57-1/8" wide, 82" long. Detailed instructional booklet is included.
This is a blueprint style plan which is heralded by beginners and experts alike as being a pleasure to work from because all parts are printed in full size -- all joinery is shown in actual size, curved workpieces are all in full size, therefore you can measure and trace straight from the drawing if necessary. A bill of materials doubles as a cutting list, a detailed exploded diagram, and all hardware requirements are provided. A special booklet entitled Guide to Building Wood Furniture is included with each Furniture Designs, Inc. plan and includes many tips explaining the "component theory" of woodworking.
