Time for Caroline to make room in the nursery, hence this (full size) bed for her new room.
Poplar for all frames and posts, and birch ply for the panels. Drawer boxes are pine, fronts poplar. KV full extension soft-close glides. My first time using/installing glides, so a couple of drawers don’t work as perfectly as I’d hoped – but always room for improvement! Non-mortise hanger hardware in each corner (2 at each, which I stressed out about screwing up – a self-centering bit made the job much easier) and the result is rock solid.
I was stumped for a bit about how to create the structure to hang the drawer glides, but also have a modular/transportable design. I came up with the mounting block and cross-beam idea which I really dig – see pics.
Hope you like!
