A platform beds is a small ingenious sleeping contraption that puts your bedrooms 5 or 6 feet off the ground. Under a platform bed is an especially pleasant place to place a desk or a set of drawers. If your place of life is desperately in need of a more functional area, then the making of a piece of furniture, so that your operating margin. Cut four pieces of 4 x 4 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 shaping. Each cut will using two passes with the electric saw. Notches on top of each of 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.
Using a carpenter’s square as a guide, make a cut at the 9 1/4 inch mark. Divide the line with the blade of the saw and then continue making cross cuts with the circular saw and continue using the carpenter’s square as a guide. Chisel all the material between the cuts with a sharp material chisel and a hammer. Do this for the four positions. Determine the size of the platform bed full 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 (this includes an extra inch of flexibility).

Place the two long pieces of 2-by-10 (84 inches is the correct length) to two 4s 4-by-2-inch wooden screws. Remember to drill pilot holes and also make a hollow space that is about 1/2 inch deep. Use a bit of speed 3/4 inch hole to do this. Make sure the recess cut is only a 1/2 deep. The recess cut will be used instead of a countersink to hold the head of the fastening bolt.
