Loft 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. 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.
Loft platform bed 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 bed structure (width and length). If you have already purchased a mattress, then add 4 inches to each dimension to determine the overall size of the wooden structure. 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.
Loft platform bed, 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. Place the two 2 by 10 long pieces to two 4s 4-by-2-inch wood screws. Remember to drill pilot holes and also make a hollow space that is about 1/2 inch deep. Use a little speed 3/4 inch hole to do this. Make sure the cut recess is only a deep 1/2 inch. The recess cut will be used instead of a countersink to hold the head of the securing bolt.
