Part of my over all bedroom suit project plan.
Dimensions 26 1/2 wide, 19 1/2 deep, by 26 tall
Aromatic cedar finished with Polyurethane…
Drawers white pine with birch plywood bottoms.

This is one of the last projects I used Polyurethane on. I have discovered living less than a mile from the water tends to cause the humidity levels to be too high, and given temperatures can often reduce tack time (the time that it takes for the poly to skin over) They just don’t make it for my area, and NONE of the polyuerathane manufacturers will tell you anyways to reduce tack time, thin, or anything due to some apperent legal concerns.

No, I have not. I’ve got a small night stand in the plans, and a riser bed with drawers in it. I’ve made sketches of the bed, but it’s been a long time since I’ve built a bed frame, so the necessaties of it are escaping my memory.
