Well this is subject to change at anytime as directed by management.
With some help from the forums I have been designing the platform bed for my bedroom wall unit. Below are the initial sketchup designs. I had initially thought about using a torsionbox under the mattress platform but I think I was overdesigning the bed. So I raised the supports up to the 13.5 inches of the outside frame so that the platform will be supported by them instead.
The frame will be made of 6/4 oak with 2 sheets of mdf sandwiched in between. The mdf will be 3 section glued and screwed together with pocket screws using a reversible glue joint on all the edges.
The below image shows the base assembly with the top removed. The holes will be for drawers once I have them designed.
Any thoughts, ideas or critiques are welcome.
