This is a bed that I just finished for my youngest son. It has 7 large drawers all 13” tall, 26” wide and 24” deep (the foot drawer is 30” deep). The head and foot board are 2” mahogany and the raised panels are 3/4. The drawers are fitted fairly tight with solid wood runners on the drawers, with wax they work very smooth and easy. The drawer frame sections rest on a ledge on the head and foot with a stop in the center that lines things up. There are 3 #14 screws at each corner to attach the frames to the head/ foot. The drawers look to be on the ground but are 3/4 off so all is supported on the corners as the floor is never level. It is easy to line up, put together, and break down. The drawer boxes are 1/2 birch plywood. The drawer frames are poplar with pocket screws and are very rigid and straight. It looks and works very well. When screwed together it is perfectly square and will not rack at all.
