Platform Bed

OK, I want to make a new platform bed....... I have a basic design in my head... I just can't make up my mind if I want to risk using 2x2 for the framework or if I should go with 2x3's or 2x4's.........

Queen Size the Platform will be in 2 halves so that it can be moved easier. I plan on having Storage under it as well. It's pretty much 2 30" x 80" boxes about 16 to 18" tall

I have a tendancy to like to Over build things...... which is why I was thinking a 2x2 framework in it......... Just gonna get a standard Queen size mattress for it.

I went to your site. You do very nice work. Didn't see a platform bed. I could have missed it. Can you post a picture?

The Question now is doors or drawers?? the base is going to be a modular (2 pcs) to make it easier to move.

Unless you like spending a lot of time

prone on the floor looking into a dark hole to find things, I would certainly recommend drawers. They will be a whole lot more practical.

Apologies extended for taking so long to respond. Must have missed the question. With regard to posting pictures here, I guess I haven't mastered that skill yet but the pictures are on the website and I have a "shiny new nickel for you" (from Billy Bob Thornton in Armagedon) when you report back that you found them.

I just did a queen bed for my daughter. If you want to look at the pictures it is listed under projects as "Queen Bed"
