This is a queen size bedroom set I made for my son a few years ago when he was still at home. We all know the drill—you go shopping for furniture for a room and you can’t stand all the garbage you find in the stores. I told my wife “I can build better than that”. Of course the only problem is it took me two months to complete.
There are 12 drawers under the bed. Drawer construction on all pieces is 1/2” Baltic birch plywood sides with box joints, red oak drawer face. The 7 drawer chest is 70” high. Chest and night stands are frame and raised panel construction. The drawers move wood on wood and are smooth as glass.
All red oak except for the Baltic birch drawer boxes. Finish is 4 coats of poly sprayed with an HVLP gun, then paste wax. This one will be in the family for generations.
I apologize for the pictures. Photography is not my forte.
