The base to our California King size bed as it came from the store was black painted particle board. I finally found the time to make a replacement base that offers four big drawers for storing linens and what-not in what was wasted space. The design I used matches the bed frame and other furniture in the room.

The construction is a combination of red oak lumber with red oak plywood to lighten the frame and save a little $. The drawers are slide mounted with heavy duty slides for ease of use. The finish is Honey Oak stain and satin polyurethane.
