As any ten-year-old boy can tell you, the space beneath the bed makes for an efficient storage solution. A queen bed measuring 18 inches tall covers more than 50 cubic feet of storage space. By building a king size platform storage bed, you can take advantage of that space and save money on the purchase of a prefabricated bed frame. Put aside one afternoon for this project, in addition to overnight to allow the paint to dry.
Cut the planks of wood and plywood to the required lengths using your electric saw. Sand all sides of your wood with coarse-grained paper. Establish a 78-inch plank and a 60-inch plank together in the shape of an L, with the end of the board and butt with the side of the shorter. Connect with two L-keys set in the inner corner, each strap adjusted 3 inches from either edge of the planks. Set the other 60-inch plank against the free end of the 78-inch table. Fasten with two L-keys as before. Slide the other 78-inch board between the two 60-inch boards, parallel to the first 78-inch board and 20 inches away from it. One with two L-keys on each corner of king size platform storage bed, as before.

Place the plywood sheets down on the top of the frame that has been built side by side with its outer edges flush with the outer edges of the frame.

Place the other blade for the first use of its five hinges. Screw the hinges into place with the screws attached. Fasten the screws to 6 inches, 26 inches, 40 inches 54 inches and 74 inches from one of the edges. Sand the outer faces of your king size platform storage bed frame using fine-grained sandpaper. Paint or stain if you wish.
