Did you talk about putting drawers or some sort of storage on each side of the tunnel? that could be done pretty easy. Like DaveR said, your going to need some cross members. Rick, I know your SWMBO wants this ASAP, but there is a lot of space that could be used. JMHO

What sort of joints did you at the corners of the rails and the ends?
