I make bunkbeds and I am tring to find a good pattern to make drawers for underneath the beds. Does anyone know of a website that has good plans or that they have plans on how to make them. Any advice would be helpful.

When you get to actually making the drawers, I saw this tip in a wood magazine: Install the drawer glides first, then build the drawers to fit the drawer glides. I just finished several pull out drawers in the kitchen and used this method…what a difference from making the drawers and then installing the glides.
