Design change on the fly. I decided that with our EXTREMELY limited storage space I couldn’t waste the space under one side of the bed so I made a long rectangular cubby that will have a door to store… maybe the vacuum cleaner? Not sure yet.
I also decided on one larger drawer instead of two smaller ones. If I had made two they would have been a bit small. One drawer is a bit large but it will be better that way I think.
The long box like cubby that the door will be added to later.
A long view shot of the bed with two sides skinned with hard maple. It was easier to work by raising the side of the bed up a bit.
The front with the opening for one drawer and the cubby near the head for glasses, watch, etc. This will eliminate the need for night tables which wouldn’t fit well in our room situation. I made the plywood box and inserted it into the opening. The bottom and top edges are trimmed with a small raised molding. The very bottom of the bed that is reset from the rest has a maple board gluing.
The other two sides of the bet will be against walls so I’ll finish them off with a cabinet grade plywood I picked up. and of course I need to decide on a headboard style. Onward!
