    My daughter requests a new bedroom suite

    My daughter and her hubby are wanting Dad to build them a new bedroom suite. I'm on the lookout for plans or concepts of bedroom furniture. If you have done a bedroom suite I'd like to see it. I'm just in the process of gathering ideas to work from.

    I did this one a few years back but I want something a bit different for them. Show me yours, please.
    I once heard that cats and women will do darn well what they please and that men and dogs would do well to accept it and just go on.

    Errrr, no guidance / preferences at all from your "customers"?

    Do they have a large bedroom? Then you can consider things like a pencilpost bed, or sleigh bed. If it is a smaller bedroom then you might consider a bed w/out a footboard.

    Personally, I like a taller bed. Just like the way it looks.

    Jim, I haven't built a bedroom set but I wanted to say what a beautiful job you did on the one pictured. I'm sure whatever you decide on will be equally as beautiful.

    I received the same request from my younger daughter. Fortunately she is partial to A&C and likes the suite published by WOOD over the last couple of years. Fortunately because I already have all the plans sitting on my book shelves!

    Them's really nice, I especially like the first one. What is that material you have used? What's the texture on the panels inside the frames??

    I made this bed a while back for a buddy. He picked the style.


    Woodsmith did a whole matching bedroom set in a couple of their issues. If you are interested I can look up which editions had the pieces.
