Craftsman-Style Futon Sofa Bed

The heavy-duty hardware, solid-wood construction, and Craftsman-style features make this futon a pleasure to build.

Few projects are more practical than this handsome, Craftsman-style futon. If you have limited space and a lot of guests, a futon is a perfect solution. But a store-bought futon can leave your guest room or den looking like a college dorm. For this design, I adapted some classic furniture techniques using Craftsman details to elevate the look of a typical futon.
