Build Instructions


Build Instructions & Cut Lists

Spine build animation:  


You can build your bed with just a few simple tools, one sheet of plywood, and a few standard pieces of lumber.


Create a strong, sturdy bed frame with our solid steel brackets.

  • Cut wood to size, or purchase pre-cut (see cut list above). Sand lightly and remove dust. Apply finish, if desired, and let dry.
  • Set the four Box Frame Bed Brackets out, and begin by assembling the frame. Insert the two longer lengths (sides) into the brackets first, flush against the bracket corners. Then add the shorter head and foot pieces between the two side pieces, and secure with screws.
  • Add 2x4 rails to support the slats. Place rails on the inside of the brackets, flush with the bottom of the frame, and attach to the frame with screws.
  • attach center support spine to 2x4 rails at head and foot.
  • Lay the slats across the rails, starting with the head and foot ends, so the first and last slats overlap the rails. Space the remaining slats evenly, and secure the slats to the rails with a screw at each end.
  • Slot in the assembled headboard bracket, slide the headboard in, and hand tighten the knob.
  • Add your mattress on top of the slats, and enjoy your new bed!

If you have an order with us and would like to make a change or cancel, we’d love to accommodate. We highly encourage you to reach out as soon as possible. Your order is custom and we want to make it perfect for you!

We know talking about fees is no fun, yet it is a reality and changes mid production incur real costs. We have kept these fees low and kept them in line with reflecting the efforts of our team's professional work.

Here are the windows within which we accept changes/modifications and any fees associated.

(Change/modification fees must be paid over the phone at the same time as requested. Fees will be deducted from the subtotal and all shipping costs will be fully refunded if canceled.)

Precision Manufacturing.

Have you ever tried to make a wooden chair or a table? What's hard is getting the pieces to stay together under a load. You either need to have some really hard wood and strong joinery skills, or you need to beef up the lumber and use lots and lots of screws and glue to Frankenstein it all together. (See everyone’s first woodworking project :)

But what if we made the metal do the heavy lifting and you focused on the clean lines, the lumber species, the grain pattern? Instead of dropping a few hundred on new tools, what if you designed within the constraints most of us have, a small saw and a drill, or a way to get to Home Depot with a cut list?

That's how we approach our metal product designs. We make, so you can make it.

Most of us don't have time to learn how to make a castle joint from walnut that might end up as a $600 mistake. But we can take some walnut or birch plywood and make some pretty amazing beds with a little help from these Box Frame Bed metal corner legs.
