Modern Four-Poster Bed
Straightforward construction and elegant styling combine to create a restful retreat for years to come.
From the tall tapered posts to the frame-and-panel headboard and footboard, classic design elements make this bed a showpiece that’s at home in just about any bedroom decor. In addition to the style considerations, you'll appreciate the ease of construction and attention to the overall structure. Since the bed will be moved at some point, you can't use permanent joinery to attach the headboard and footboard to the rails. Fortunately, modern knockdown hardware makes it possible to accommodate almost any design. We've chosen some very common hardware and assembly ideas for this bed.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
