Spent the better part of the last few weeks building this platform bed. Walnut and birch. The drawer pulls have finger relief routed in the bottoms. Just several coats of semi-gloss poly for a simple finish. Decided I don’t like the puck lights in the headboard so I plan on replacing them with some LED strips when I can find the appropriate ones. If I build another one it will have fewer drawers, by the time I got to the 12th one it was getting a little tedious.

looks like a good bed

i think 12 drawers is about right
2 for you
and 10 for the wife
seems fair

made one similar years ago
before the drawers got started
the three dogs claimed their spots under it
never did have drawers

Great bed very practical

David I only get one and it is for keeping

dog toys in it, that is the only way I get a spot

on the bed. I throw a ball or two and grab the

warm gap left behind.

You did a great job on that bed! I love the headboard and the lights. With all those drawers, who needs closets or dressers.

Do you plans for this bed? I like it. It would be great for the 12 drawers my wife needs.
