I’ve been wanting to build this be for a long time. We bought a new memory foam mattress and that seemed like the right time. I had no plans to follow. Just some ideas in my head and a few notes on a piece of paper. I bought rough sawn cypress from a somewhat local supplier. I bought 16 1×6x8 and 6 1×8x6 all 4/4. This was a lot more than I needed, but I needed to buy enough to make the trip worthwhile. The drawers are 30” wide and 24” deep. This will be a lot of extra clothes storage. Piece made the drawers with the front attached to sides with sliding dovetails and the back joints were lock rabbets. These were firsts for me, so it took a little time, but they turned out good I think. I love the cypress. The finish is sprayed on Minwax polycrylic. Thanks for looking.
