Walnut and cherry storage bed
This is a storage bed I made to match the modern chest of drawers and nightstand I previously built for my oldest son.
The headboard and footboard is made from cherry and the center is air dried walnut. The construction is frame and panel. The legs are glued up 8/4 material to give me the thickness for the legs.
The storage area is constructed from plywood and pocket screws. The cherry face frame is attached with pocket screw as well. The face frame is extended upward to hold the mattress into place.
The drawers are constructed of the same air dried cherry and air dried walnut. Both sides of the bed have a continuous walnut grain pattern to them. The construction of the drawers is box joints made on the band saw. I routed out spaces on the drawer fronts to put your hand in and pull the drawer open. Reasoning for this is 1. I didn't want outside drawer handles used as steps and 2. I didn't want legs dinged or scraped on them.
