I made this maple storage bed for my 10 year old granddaughter. It has 14 drawers and one door, with headboard. It took 3 sheets of 3/4’’ maple and 1 sheet of 1/4’’ maple plywood. 3 sheets of 3/4’’ particle board and 14 drawers slides. It is heavy and made in 5 pieces assembled on site. My 12 year granddaughter says she wants one too. uggg. lol It takes a long time to make one of these.

I like making stuff for family and doing it for free. Never get any complaints about the price that way. lol

It’s a real good design and it turned out nicely.

Don, I like it a lot. The door opens to a tunnel between the drawer backs? Good place for skis when she starts that.
