The Modern Platform Bed series isn’t a typical Guild project. It’s an exploration into designing a project around a client’s needs. Unlike most of our builds, you will not receive a perfect finished plan and cut list though you will have access to my working SketchUp file. What makes this series unique is the fact that we focus a lot on design evolution and client restrictions. Of course, I’ll show you how to build the bed too.

This series of videos assumes you have at least some general woodworking knowledge. Additionally, unlike other Guild builds, anything in my tool arsenal is fair game. When working for a client, I believe in using whatever means necessary to produce high-quality work that will make the customer happy.

All videos and plans are digital and will be available to download upon purchase. Closed Captioning available.


Great project and lots of fun.

Mark does a great job explaining every aspect in this project. I’m a weekend warrior woodworker and he made this much easier than I thought it was going to be. The bed looks great in my bedroom and always get the where did you buy that question. Can’t wait to start the modern nightstand and chest of drawers.
