DIY Modern Platform Bed | Modern Builds EP. 48

Today I’m building a king size Mid-Century/Japanese inspired modern platform bed. If you plan to build this for a different size mattress, simply subtract or add the difference in mattress size on the bed. This was a really fun build and a design I wanted to build for a while, so I was really excited to build this one!

wikideenu says:

looks pretty good but I feel like those legs would concentrate all the weight and destroy whatever surface the bed is on

Is there an estimate how much this would cost to build?

Chris Rodriguez says:

fc uk says:

This is so awesome! Reference for the future when I’m settled down and not moving around (since it’s so heavy). Love the simplicity of the overall look.

john legaspi says:

Shadow Drag says:

Like i love the design but how much would this all cost? I think around 100-200 depends where you get the wood and what type of wood you want

Oahu Girl Friday says:

I seriously want to try and make one of these Queen size for my son.  Using repurposed wood laying around the aina.  It will be more meaningful I think.

oh my gosh were do u live ..can u do mine?

joe selzer says:

after see this video again and some other video i think i can make some thing like this but no head board

john legaspi says:

cool bed, i made one pretty similar to it in concept but made in under $200 cad value. i was thinking maybe I should build another one that I can fold in to two and maybe a lil lighter so if ever I move out to a different house it would be so much easier to carry it and bring it in to the doors and easy to unfold it back to set in to a bed room.

carlton sorrells says:

Has anyone done this and/or have the costs of just the lumber?

Chelsey Rozay says:

Awesome! one question… how do you get it into the bedroom??? or move it anywhere for that matter….

noreen geli says:

Tackleboys says:

R.J. Tuumalo says:
