The Bubb Bed

Bubb Bed Main
Normally, a customer contacts me directly and we work together on designs until I come up with something that fulfills their needs and desires. This time, however, I was contacted by a talented and friendly designer here in Lancaster city who had been commissioned by his customers to draw up a bed for their new home.

Bubb Bed Sketch

One of the drawings I received detailing the specifications of the bed's construction

Having gotten a hold of my name via a mutual friend, he called and asked if I would be willing to build the piece that he had designed, literally down to the 16th of an inch. I replied that I would be happy to, and we began work together.

Upon the start of the project, I was provided with technical drawings that gave me all of the information that I needed in order to construct this deceptively complex bed frame. In fact, the drawings were so good and so precise, I knew from the beginning that I was dealing with a kindred spirit in the perfectionist department, and I used that knowledge to fuel my desire to make a bed that we could both be proud of.

Constructed from a combination of solid Cherry and furniture grade Cherry veneer plywood (edged with 3/16″ solid Cherry), this massive bed filled my shop just about to capacity during its construction. Though technically complex, the challenge of building it paled in comparison to the challenge of moving it. The headboard is a full 10′ long and nearly 4′ tall. I’m not sure of its exact weight, but I know I don’t want to move it again.

Bubb Bed 3This piece has several great features. Straddling the mattress are two incorporated night stands, complete with nicely sized drawers. The design called not only for “floating” tops, but the night stands themselves were also required to appear as though they were floating above the floor. The resulting illusion brings an unexpected lightness to an otherwise very heavy (literally and figuratively) piece.

Another nice element is the presence of built in shelving behind the angled portion of the headboard. Though not overly large, it allows the storage of books and magazines without cluttering up the surface of the night stand. At the base of the shelves is a wire grommet to allow electrical cords to run through the headboard and into the outlets concealed in the shadowbox behind the bed to avoid the hazard of cords running wild all over the place.

Bubb Bed 4

The bed frame itself sits up nicely on an elevated gridwork support system. The grid as well as the headboard are outfitted with adjustable plastic feet which allow the bulky bed to be moved with substantially less effort than would otherwise be possible.

Finally, since I’m always looking for creative ways to make furniture even more functional, I decided to incorporate a secret compartment in the bed. The shadowbox behind the headboard is designed to hide cords and give an overall sense of clean lines, but it struck me that there was an awful lot of wasted space back there. So, I inserted a spring loaded panel which, when pressed, releases upwards revealing a vertical storage shelf for important documents and personal effects. Due to the length of the headboard, when viewed from the bedside, this feature is all but invisible.
