How to build a full size platform bed

Hi there and thank you for your question.


Franky there is a great post on the community from my fellow associate Ask_Mr_Jay that explains in detail how to build a platform bed frame. Click on the image bellow to get redirected to his post with How-To instructions, drawings and list of materials needed for this project.

"Once those two are built, toenail the two sections (drive in on an angle) and make sure again to pre-drill. Add in some wood glue around the edges for a stronger bond if needed. Once ready (or dry), you can apply your sheets of plywood to the top tier..."
