Took several long days to get this thing done. Being stationed in Japan it made things a bit more difficult and quite a bit more expensive sourcing the materials for this project. I had to opt for 1/2" plywood as cost of lumber here in okinawa is nearly double that of what you would see in the states. I made a few other modifications to the plans here and there where I felt it would better fit my needs. I wanted more storage space so I made the drawer boxes 20" deep. Rather than nail and glue the drawer bottoms on I wanted a reassuring solid hold so I grooved out the drawers and inserted the bottom panel with glue to secure it in place. The drawer faces I chose to add a little more detail in the molding by using miter cuts and the router to add some texture. The headboard was actually a previous project that was requested by my wife so with some modification I was able to rebuild that and fit it into the build. The 4x4's were grooved out with a 3/4" straight bit to slide my headboard and footboard slats into place. All in all this project was a lot of fun, the bed is now a monster of a thing to move but solid as a rock we love it. Thanks for the plans!
