Working on a full size version of the rustic farmhouse bed that’s lately been getting a lot of traction. Here’s a SketchUp model of the overall dimensions and I will soon have a detailed assembly schematic and cut list.
The full size box spring and mattress combo measures 54″ x 75″ so both the width and length of the original queen version change. This is a standard full sized bed measurement, but variations do exist! Be sure to measure your box spring and mattress and adjust the plan accordingly if necessary.
Because of the thinner header and footer (@ 59″ wide), I used 8 1×8 panels, but because they don’t divide evenly to the appropriate width for a full bed, the two end panels need to be trimmed down to 4 1/4”. Remember nominal sizes vs. actual sizes… the nominal size of a 1×8 is actually 7 1/4” wide.
Also, note that the length of the bed rails is 77” instead of 82” for the queen & king. That also changes the bed rail construction, particularly the “shelf” holding the 6 supporting 2×4 slats. Cut a bridle joint 3 inches from each end then space the slat joints 10″ to evenly space them.
