King Size Platform Bed Plan
King size platform bed is a clever little sleeping gadget that puts your bedrooms 5 or 6 feet off the ground. Underneath a platform bed is an especially nice place to place a desk or set of drawers. If your living space is desperately in need of more functional area, then work out a piece of furniture, so that your operating margin. Cut four 4 x 4 pieces to the length of 6 feet, or whatever height you want to create your platform bed. You can use a circular saw to make the cut, but make sure that each end is square. Each cut will require two passes with the electric saw.
King size platform bed, notches at the top of each 4 by 4 to accommodate a 2 x 10 piece of wood. This means taking a circular saw and setting the depth exactly to 1 1/2 inches. Make a square pencil mark precisely at 9 1/4 inches from a 4 x 4 end. With a carpenter’s square as a guide, make a 9 1/4 inch mark cut. Divide the line with the blade of the saw and then continue making cross cuts with the circular saw and continue using the squad of carpenter as a guide. Chisel all the wood between the cuts with a sharp wood chisel and a hammer. Do this for the four posts.
Determine the size of the king size platform bed structure. If you have already purchased a mattress, then add 4 inches to each dimension to determine the overall size of the wooden structure (this includes an extra inch of flexibility). For example, a mattress size of 80 by 56 inches will have a frame cut to the length of 84 inches by 60 inches. We must go with these dimensions. Cut two pieces by 2 by 10 to 84 inches, but we have to shorten the end pieces by 3 inches (to take into account the thickness of the two long pieces). Thus the pieces of the ends are cut to 57 inches. Cut these four pieces on a pair of trestles with a carpenter’s square and a circular saw.
