Connect them with two L-braces on the inside corner, every 3 inches from any edge planks. Repeat step three to build a storage bed queen with second L with 58-inch and 80-inch discs. Arrange two L shapes into a rectangular frame. Connect them to the open corners as you did less. Insert a 58-inch plank onto the rectangle, parallel to and 20 inches from one of the closed planks. Attach it to both sides with the L braces.
Insert the remaining two 58-inch planks, each parallel and 20 inches from the plank inserted immediately before. Attach as you did the first interior plank.
