517 Platform Bed Build No. 6 “A place to lay down”

published 5 years ago by Matt Vanderlist

We’re FINALLY moving forward with the platform bed. After this round of construction it actually resembles a place you could lay down and take a snooze. In today’s episode we construct the platform itself. A simple mitered frame that gets attached to the “undercarriage” and a series of slats to keep the mattress from falling through the larger openings. Perhaps the hardest part of the build today was dragging my son’s mattress into the basement for the test fit. Even gluing the miters together was made easier thanks to a sample of Nexabond’s 2500L C.A. glue. It’s much longer open time than traditional C.A. glues made it easier to use without worrying about parts sticking to me or the floor. Help support the show - please visit our advertisers
