  1. Note: That is not normal 3/4 ply. It is 1 1/8 inch thick Sturdifloor plywood.

    2. Thank you for the information. I have been wanting to make a simple platform bed. Do you know why they added the holes to the top layer of wood?

    3. To keep the mattress ventilated. If you do not drill holes and give the mattress a chance to breath there is good chance it will become mouldy.

    4. Hi there,

      Do you have plans or any further information on building this DIY bed platform. It looks wonderful

  2. I believe it is for mattress ventilation. Many memory foam mattresses designed for platform beds should not be on a solid surface

  3. I think I would have the mattress fit the platform exactly and then make matching side tables. Seems like it would be hard to get in and out of bed the way it has been made, not to mention making the bed would be harder.

  4. How much weight can this hold? Would it hold a full size bed plus 2 people about 300lbs?
