Making beds with two tiers

Next publication will address the manufacture and assembly of two different models of bunk beds - the "classic" type, and the bed-loft.However, many elements of the designs and their assembly principles - are exactly the same, and not to be repeated, for a start it will show these details separately, by the example of the conventional wooden bed.If these principles are learned, and the creation of a second tier will not be easy, of course, taking into account specific features.

Principles build quality wooden bed

To score it neat, you must make perfectly sure and handle all the details.The following table ballpen instruction are illustrations in which the master uses professional tools - they're a lot faster and easier operation.However, that same operations can be carried out quite a common tool, which is in almost any good, "rukastogo" host.Of course, we will have to make more effort, and production takes more time, but still it is - maybe.

Illustration Brief description of the operation being performed
lz1 So, all boards should be planed, their surface - perfectly aligned and fitted to the desired size.
This illustration shows the production of side-bar - sidebar bed supporting structure.
lz2 to cross the board, which will be laid a mattress, have a reliable and durable support, fixed on the side-bar is well-treated bars.
lz3 On the panel side-bar, for gluing timber line, carpenter's glue is applied.
Then it fits pasted element.
Bruce well pressed and contracted clamps in several places.
Once the glue is dry, parts are held together with screws through holes drilled "under the jackpot."
lz4 very important point is the production of side-racks legs as they fall high load.
on these items in the future will be fixed side and end panels bed.
therefore they are usually collected from two layers, one of which is basic, and consists of a timber.
second layer is assembled from individual elements arranged at a certain distance from each other.
lz5 This distance depends on the width of the side-bar, the edge of which will be set in the resulting groove.
individual pieces of lumber glued on first marks on the whole piece, and then they drilled holes "under the jackpot" for self-tapping screws.
lz6 Another thing that causes trouble - is to create a straight-forms in some detail, for example, in the manufacture of semi-circular backs headboard and footboard.
To avoid mistakes, and do not draw unnecessary roughing lines on most of the wood element, it is recommended to make a paper template from which the form is carried on board neat dashed contours.
lz7 then taken a flexible plastic strip, which can be bent by bending the cut, and already it is carried out finishing curved boundary of the cut.
lz8 Further, sawing planks produced by the marked line using an electric jigsaw.
This photo shows professional stationary machine, but it can also be used hand tools.
AH 9 After this cut-off line is treated by manual or fixed a router that rounded edges and deliver them from the protruding wood fibers.
In the same way are cut and processed all the boards needed to create elements for the headboard and footboard.
lz10 When will be made all the necessary parts to build a bed, you should make them a fitting and making the necessary layout.
AH 11 Further, manufactured, or purchased ready-made connecting dowels.
They may be circular or have a planar shape as shown in this illustration.
AH 12 Ready dowels are arranged on the parts to be put together.
At the same time it will be possible to visually assess how many of them need.
AH 13 In places where there are drilled holes for dowels, made a pencil mark.
Simply drill holes for dowels round, picking up the drill size.
If the compounds are used in flat dowels, the drill holes are drilled next to a few, which are then combined with a chisel or a cutter.
AH 14 dowels are inserted into the holes, no glue is, as you must first carry out a preliminary assembly structure, to ensure that there will be no distortions.
AH 15 After that, the free ends of the dowels to put on the bed stand.
rubber or wooden hammer (mallet) can be used to complete prosazhivanie parts during assembly.
AH 16 Making the Connection details of one of the sides of the back pass to mount a second rack.
AH 17 Gathering individual elements bed, you must make a pre-assembly of the whole structure of the "first floor" to make sure that all parts are precisely matched to each other.
AH 18 on the bed frame laid the foundations of the board - the process is carried out to determine the optimal distance between them.
dya19 When the size of the gaps between the boards will be determined by him cut and pasted fragments of the bar between the boards on support beams, which laid the foundations of the board.
These elements allow the boards to be in a predetermined position without shifts, so they just placed without fixing screws edge.
lz20 After all the preliminary operations m making possible the necessary adjustments, the entire structure assembled and disassembled again, but "tightly", ie with the use of glue.
dya21 The illustration shows well how the connection is resistant beds with paneled headboards backrest using dowels, glue lubricated.
dya22 Glued bed frame is required to pull the clamp to the complete drying and then it is further fastened with screws through holes drilled "under the jackpot."
dya23 The illustration clearly visible pieces of timber, fixed to the longitudinal support shelf tsargi - between them and will be subsequently laid the foundations of the board under the mattress.
dya24 final compound tsargi backs and headboard and footboard made screws.
AH 25 This illustration shows a cut must be made at the bottom of the feet under the plinth to the bed could be installed against a wall.
