IMO, free plans for this type of project are worth every penny you pay for
them. If you're going to build an heirloom piece, pay the $12 for good
plans and instruction.
Thanks. One last question, I have all the basic tools, Table Saw,
Router, Chop Saw, for a project like this, is there any tools I might
need that I might not have?
I'm in the process of making a queen size mission style bed out of oak.
I think I spent about $500 on the wood, mostly S2S. Tools - make sure
you have some mortise chisels or a drill press + forstner bits to make
As far as plans, I have the plan at the link below (or DAGS for mission
bed plans and pick one you like). If you're spending several hundred
dollars on wood, and probably a few hundred more on tools you just
can't live without, the $12-17 spent on a detailed plan for a
complicated project is worth it in my opinion, even if it's just a
starting point. The plans I have include details for how to expand to
king size or reduce to full or twin. I've modified them slightly, but
it sure helped to have everything laid out for me.
Several other places have the same plan - "Classic Bed Plan"
