Topic tags/keywords: question pine rustic bed

Hi all, I’m new to this website, and have looked all over and not found any tips/plans or suggestions on building drawers underneath a log bed. The Bed we are designing will be a california King, quiet tall since we are both over 6 ft tall, so we would like to utilize the space by building draws for storage underneath. Has anyone out there taken on this project and if so be willing to share any information with me? Thanks so much for your help!!

If the long rails are logs with a variable profile, you could plow out a long, deep dado on the bottom where the face frame of the drawers could float while sitting on the floor.
