Build your own designer double bed

Double bed Azobe: a minimalist design. Preferably the corners should be mitered (= cut at an angle of 45 degrees): the best solution because the accents get all the attention in such a clean and sober design. But in the manual we also describe how you can join the corners with simpler “butt joints” (straight-end to straight-end).

The design

We have naturally tried to design as beautiful a bed as possible. For this bed, we have taken account of a few specific things:

We have naturally tried to make the design as beautiful as possible. For this double bed, we have taken particular account of a few things. We have tried as far as possible to hide all screws. We also detail how, in some places, you can use dowels to join pieces together, such that you don’t need any screws. If you want to paint the unit, you can neatly hide any remaining evidence of screws with help from some filler. In our tips for furniture makers we describe how you can do this.

Finally, the design takes account of the capabilities and limitations of a typical DIY’er and their tools. If you have a hand saw (and in some cases a jigsaw) and a drill and know how to handle them, then you should be able to make all of our TV furniture. To cut the panels, we recommend the use of a circular saw, but you can usually ask your wood supplier to do this for you.

… adjustments

As you might have already seen in the photos of finished furniture, it’s really easy to make changes to the dimensions and/or design. The cutting list and design drawings help to give you the confidence to make any changes you like.

The manual / design plan and drawings

The downloadable manual is in the form of an A4 booklet for you to print out yourself. At the start you’ll find a list of necessities, such as the wood (board or sheet material), screws (size and quantity), glue and any other parts. Also listed are the tools that you will need and a cutting list with dimensions of all the parts that make up the piece of furniture.

Each furniture plan contains a number of relevant tips about choice of material, sawing, screws, glue, sanding, painting, varnishing, etc. When dowels are given as an alternative, there is also a detailed explanation so that you can get started with full confidence.

Finally, there is a detailed step-by-step plan for the construction of the furniture, with clear diagrams and simple explanations.
