Materials Needed:

  • Electric drill
  • 1" spade bit
  • 3/8" drill bit
  • 1/4" drill bit
  • 1/8" drill bit
  • Circular saw
  • Tape measure
  • Hammer
  • 9/16" socket wrench
  • Pencil
  • Wood glue
  • Wood filler
  • 4 blocks of 2x4 cut into 8" lengths
  • 3 (2" x 6" x 8') yellow pine boards
  • 3 (1" x 1 1/2" x 8') lumber
  • 4' x 8' sheet of 1/2" plywood
  • 8 (3/8" x 4") lag bolts with washers
  • 4 (1/2" x 6") threaded eye bolts
  • 4 (5/16" x 4 7/8”) eye bolts that attach into the ceiling
  • 8 (1/2") washers to fit eye bolts
  • 8 quick-connect chain connectors
  • 4 (3/16") chain cut to length for desired height of bed

Step 1

Cut two of the 2' x 6' x 8' boards to a length of 73”. Cut the remaining board into two 39"-long pieces. Lay out the previously cut boards to ensure that the outside edge of the platform frame measures 76" x 39".

Step 2

Draw a line 3/4 inches in from the edge of each 39" board. Along this line, mark a dot 1 1/4 inches below the top edge and 1 1/4 inches above the bottom edge of each board. Repeat this process for all four corners of the frame. With the spade bit and working at each dot, drill a 1-inch hole to a depth of 1/4 inch; drill a 3/8-inch hole through the center of the 1-inch hole. Repeat this process for all four corners of the frame. Lag bolts will go through these holes and attach to the long sides of the platform.

Step 3

Line up the rails and insert lag bolts with washers in holes. With a hammer, tap the bolts to make dimples at pilot-hole locations. With a 1/4" bit, drill pilot holes. Repeat this process for all four corners of the frame. Insert and tighten down all eight lag bolts with washers to create the frame.
