In this video I show you how to make a Queen Sized Bed Frame. This is a very sturdy frame made from wood and metal legs. If you are going to be using a foam style mattress without box springs then you can follow along with the cuts that are made in the video. If you are going to use a boxspring then use the alternate cuts to accommodate the extra size of the box springs. I built this bed for $110 but prices may vary depending on where you live. Shopping Big box stores will almost double the cost.

You will need a few materials to complete this project:
9 = 8"x1" Pipes
18 = 1" floor flanges
7 = 2x6x96 boards
6 to 12 = 2x4x93 boards
1-1/4" screws
2" screws
3" screws

Final cuts:
Sides- 2@80.5"
Head/foot- 2@63.5"
Slats-8 to 15@59.25"

Interesting plans, but poorly budgeted. The legs ALONE cost $200 where I live in the panhandle of FL. If you can incorporate some design that doesn’t cost as much as buying new from the store, then I’m interested

Those pipe legs are a good idea. Thanks for the video.

Thank you for watching. They are super strong. On the king version I went with 1/2" to save money.

Thank you. I will be uploading a few hundred videos to start with. The loft style bed is amazing. My wife and I have one in our room.
