Standard Queen size mattress is 60" wide by 80" tall, so you would just modify the width, and could probably get by with just using 2 support beams underneath instead of 3.
There are (3) 2x4s running from the head to the foot of the bed, attached with joist hangers. One in the very center, and the other two 19" to the left and right of center. This provides the support you are referring to. They are shown in purple in the 3D model images, and run beneath the furring strips. No side-to-side support is needed as the 2x4s carry the load on edge and don't deflect enough to make a difference. It is hard to see them in the picture of the completed frame because they run below the furring strips, but they are barely visible. I appreciate your input, but can confirm that the bed is holding up fine after many nights of sleep! :)
Did you read the entire instructable? I believe the 3 supports you're referring to are shown in steps 4 and 7.

This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen! Thanks for putting all of the work into the detailed instructions, especially the video. I'm really interested in the audio electronics and now I can't wait to make my own bluetooth boombox! :D

Thanks for the feedback. It looks great!
Hi Bill,You might be able to use 2x4 boards for the outer frame. If you do, just be mindful of the carriage bolt holes at the corners. I think you can probably make it work. It would definitely make under bed storage easier since you're cutting the legs shorter.As for the mattress, we still love ours from Tuft & Needle. It still springs back every morning and we don't have any valleys or peaks in it like we did with our traditional mattress. And because they are always the same price, you don't have to worry about coupons or holiday sales.Good luck!
Looks great! Our dog claimed a spot under ours, too. :)
Awesome! Thanks for sharing and I'm glad you found this helpful. :)

We actually carried all of the cut and sanded boards into the bedroom and assembled it there. It probably would not have fit down our hallway and through the doorway with the legs attached. If we ever have to move it out of the bedroom, we'll have to take the legs off. Luckily, it's only a matter of removing the 12 nuts and carriage bolts.
Thank you! Those are all great suggestions. Drawers just don't work for us because we already have enough storage for clothing and needed the space for larger items and bins. Our smallest dog, a beagle named Penny, loves sleeping underneath the bed. I love the LED lighting idea and will probably get some and see how it looks.We're not using a box spring. Mattress Firm took them away when they picked up the mattresses, and we were happy to see them go. This frame is just for our Tuft & Needle foam mattress.
Thanks! It was my first time using TinkerCAD and it was really easy. I'd definitely use it again.
