  1. Note: That is not normal 3/4 ply. It is 1 1/8 inch thick Sturdifloor plywood.

    2. Thank you for the information. I have been wanting to make a simple platform bed. Do you know why they added the holes to the top layer of wood?

    3. To keep the mattress ventilated. If you do not drill holes and give the mattress a chance to breath there is good chance it will become mouldy.

    4. Hi there,

      Do you have plans or any further information on building this DIY bed platform. It looks wonderful

  2. I believe it is for mattress ventilation. Many memory foam mattresses designed for platform beds should not be on a solid surface

  3. I think I would have the mattress fit the platform exactly and then make matching side tables. Seems like it would be hard to get in and out of bed the way it has been made, not to mention making the bed would be harder.

  4. How much weight can this hold? Would it hold a full size bed plus 2 people about 300lbs?

    I've spoken on the phone with Jim Morgan and I'm just
    blown away by his simple and effective strategy to
    make money using his basic woodworking skills.

    He started his woodworking business with NO capital,
    a few shop tools, and a lot of nerve, in a small
    10x20 foot space and grew it into a 1,400 space in
    the first few months while still remaining as a
    one-person business!

    See his story at: ==> All the woodworking tools you will need

    recession and run an easy to start and fun business,
    then you'll LOVE this guide.

    It contains all the information you need to start making
    money from the very first job...

    I've been told by Jim that there's only *8* slots left
    for the free bonus and one-on-one coaching.

    it will not be repeated.

  10. HEY would it work to make this the platform for a loft bed? and instead of casters, attach 4x4s that stilt down to the ground?

  11. To get the best out of your chosen mattress try a mattress protector. They're available in anti-allergy or waterproof styles, and are machine-washable. Mattress toppers add a luxurious extra layer to your mattress. They provide extra support and comfort and will generally provide a cosier feel to your bed.
