The design of the platform bed was pretty simple. The head board and foot boards are from 4/4 read oak jointed together. The side boards are joined to the foot and head boards using mortise-free bedlocks. There are steel L-shaped braces screwed into the lenth of each side board to hold the 1/2 inch sheet of particle board on which the matress lies. So far its held up and he is really happy with the way it turned out. He is anxious for me to get moving on the chest of drawers, as am I. Will post once that is done.
