Homemade Full Storage Bed
Full storage bed – You will find home-made full size platform beds easy to construct if you know how to measure and saw wood. You also need to know how to drill holes and how to screw both in and recesses so that you can firmly bond the boards. You will basically build a large drawer that will sit upside down so the mattress can rest on top of that platform
Poplar or forest birch makes good choice to build a full storage bed. These easily accessible forests look well colored or painted, and they are available in different widths and lengths. Full size mattresses measure 54 inches long by 75 inches wide, and if you choose to make your platform bigger to report overhang or to accommodate a built-in bedside table.
If you are building a full storage bed with a 4-inch rim on the outer edge, start with two logs measuring 75 inches long for the sides of your home-made bed as well as five logs measuring 58 inches long for the top and bottom frame and center supports in your bed. Use discs that measure 2 inches thick and 8 inches wide. The side boards come rump against the top and bottom frame boards, they get the extra 4 inches from the thickness of these two boards. Fill the platform bed with a plywood board to fit over the top of your box frame. Use metal L brackets to build the frame and connect support beams, and wooden screws to attach plywood to the frame.
