Step 1: Making Legs

Picture of Making Legs
We start by cutting the legs of the platform bed. This 4x4 wood I found outside, discarded. Find a scrap one or buy, cut yourself or cut to size at the lumber store.

Cut 8" in length if you want castors on it, 10" if you do not. You may opt for shorter legs (no shorter than 6.5") or longer ones.

Next time you might want to try using a cedar 4 X 4 instead of the pressure treated one - cedar smells nice and has less icky chemicals in it.
