Today on Modern Builds I’m making a simple, modern platform bed frame from simple materials, using simple tools. I used 1×4’s for the platform and 2×2’s for the frame. No cutting things to width, just length… you could use a miter saw, circular saw, table saw, whatever you want!

If you plan on building this project yourself, make sure and check out the written article linked below for the 3D model with plans and dimensions. If you build it, don’t forget to tag me on instagram @modernbuilds

    Great vid, as always! Although, why is it that you don't say the kind of wood you use? I assume it's pine?

    The instructional video is 98% good, you didn't mention the inside dimensions…AND the squirrel is cute, and let's give credit to the little joke of "BORING" with the guy on the "skateboard"?.

    If you assemble bed with fixed and glued in platform like this in garage or driveway, make sure that this platform will fit you stairs dimensions. The larger bed the more challenging it could be to maneuver it to bring it into bedroom if ever possible. Also you may find it cheaper to buy slatted bed base from IKEA than paying for dimensional lamber at home center to build essentially same.

    The idea of the head board is good but I wouldn't personally do it because I'd be scared of it falling on me

    I want to make this, but don't have a mitre saw, or indeed any other kind of saw. I'm also…not wealthy. As in "have been out of the homeless shelter for about 5 weeks as of fall 2019." Would I be able to cut these pieces with a jigsaw or even a small handsaw like the flush trimmer you'd use for smoothing off the dowels? Also, how do you get structural lumber to be decently square and not bow-y/bendy? I don't have a planer or leveler or router.
