My next project which will be the most involved and biggest that I have tackled to date will be a bed. I am either going to make a Arts & Craft Style or the Country bed like the ones shown here Mission Style Country Style
My question: I plan on making it a Queen size bed and do not have a mattress and will not get one until the bed is done so what size would you allow for the bed. I can adjust dimensions to accomadate any size bed but Queen sizes vary from manufacturer. Should I just take an average and go with that, take the largest?
Its kind of like buying a new mattress for an old bed you have, if we were going to we would just make sure it fits in the frame, but it wouldn't have to be exact.
