  • Cheap, easy, low-waste platform bed plans

    Hello, I actually took the bed down a while ago. It started creaking when climbing in and out. Just being held together with screws. Might help to throw some glue in there unless you want to be able to take it apart easy.I didn't make a material list of what I used but I made it to fit under a twin which is 38 x 75 mattress. I found some boards from it though. The boards on top are 32 inches long. I only used 9 of them and spaced it out to 72 I think. I ended up cutting the legs down to 14.5 inches long. That's the whole board. so it was 10 or 11 inch floor to frame. Don't hold me to this but the frame I think was 2 - 2x4 at 25 and 2 - 2x4 at 70.

    The M12 1/4 hex impact 12volt? It claims 1000 in-lbs at peak which is about 83 ft-lbs. By comparison an 18 volt ridgid is 1750 in-lbs or 145 ft-lbs. That may be the problem. You could countersink for the screw heads. I haven't seen impact drivers with settings other than variable speed in the trigger

    It's all in the proper explanation. I did not mean screwdriver. I did mean impact. A screwdriver has a clutch which will slip at the setting selected, Impact driver drives screws like a hammer drives nails

    1) Shared path is the power to the phone run through the same opening as the phone lines (signal). 2) The wall wart transformer cord ran back under the face plate into the wall traveling up in the wall to the phone. Means it's not supposed to be installed in the wall. 3) If you modify any existing electrical it has to be brought up to current code.
