CA king bed frame can be supported by platforms or frames. The platforms consist of four sides that connect to form a wooden or metal case in the center. The frame style has four metal sides interrupted a few inches from the floor with lamellae balanced between supporting the box springs and mattress. A standard king frame and mattress, also known as an Eastern King, is 76 inches by 80 inches, the same length as a queen, but 16 inches wider. A California or Western King is 72 inches by 84 inches. The mattress and frame are 12 inches wider than the queen and four inches longer.
Both of these bed sizes are very large and may not fit into smaller bedrooms. Mattresses and spring drawer are uncomfortable and difficult to maneuver up stairs and around corners. Most California king box springs are available in two separate parts to make handling easier. A home-made box frame for your CA king bed frame has several advantages compared to buying one in a store. It is significantly cheaper than a prefabricated frame. Using your own timber means that it will be more durable than particleboard is often used in finished bed frames. You can use the box as a core to which you can add as much or as little decoration as you like. Stop an afternoon to finish this project.
Cut five 1-by-18-by-78-inch wood planks, using a chainsaw. Sand with coarse sandpaper, just enough to avoid splits. Put two planks together to form a “L.” Attach them with two L-brackets, positioning one each 2 inches from either edge of the planks. Build a second “L” in the same way. Connect the two “L” shapes to form a rectangular box. Connect the corners as you did the corners of the “L” shapes. Slide the remaining shelf in the box – it should fit only in one direction. Position it at the same distance from the planks as it is parallel. Attach it to perpendicular planks with a total of four L-brackets, placed as you have the others.
