Step 5: Stage Platform

To make the platform for the stage I used loft board. I used 7 boards measuring 13'' each. The loft boards worked really well as they are strong, durable and they can interlock.

Firstly lay as many loft boards as you need on to the stage. You may need to cut them a bit shorter if there are any wall sockets. Once they are all in position screw them in with 40mm screws.
After all of that is done you can paint it, I chose to paint mine white!
<p>This would be perfect for my Drum set! Thanks!</p>
I love it! Do you have any idea how much weight the stage will support? I'd like to make it bigger for a queen sized trundle bed, and put a dresser, desk and chair on the stage. I can add oak floor boards on top of the loft boards if that helps, and I can put more legs on the sides and back, but do I need more reinforcement unerneath that big a stage???
about how much would you say this cost to build?
Without the roll out bed: Around &pound;60-70<br>With rollout bed: &pound; around &pound;120<br><br>Thanks<br><br>Oscar
This is a great project! I am moving into a new house soon and Always wanted a stage for my guitar playing. Thanks for the ideas dude.<br><br>However I might go the extra mile and put some kind of frame around the bed. And maybe paint the back wall green so you can use it for a greenscreen. Just some Ideas.
