Bed Frame/Platform

Our daughter's bed was falling apart, and the wife wanted to buy a new one. I said it'd probably be cheaper to build one. So, I drew some plans, we went out and bought supplies, and now my daughter has a bed that she loves. I used 4"x"4 for the feet, 2"x10" for the head and foot, two 2"x6" for the sides, and 2"x4" for the ribs. Everything cut with the Ryobi 10" sliding compound miter and miter stand, drilled and screwed with Ryobi impact and drills, with Ryobi forstner bits and black oxide drill bits. I used 1/4"x5' construction screws, so I used a 5/8" forstner to make the holes for the screw head to fit. Then I drilled pass-through and pilot holes and screwed it all together. The frame is 84"x54"x21" high. The reason for the size was to accommodate the hide-away bed underneath. The platform is just a piece of 1/4" masonite.
