Fantastic grain selection for the drawer fronts! Will you be making the rest of the set?
Oh - Model T?
At some point I will be making a bed. My son is 2 and still in his crib for a while. He shares a room with his brother and already has a night stand in there.
Also it's a '31 ford model AA. Check my instagram @r2_woodworking for more pics and the story behind it.
I added two photos of the back side. The shelves are attached with Domino's to the front wenge pieces and glue only on the sides. With it being a magazine rack and only holding a couple there isn't an issue with it being end grain. The long grain glue joint should be more than enough of a joint.
Great project. Do you have any pictures of the bottoms of the shelf that keeps the magazine from falling out of the bottom?
Hi rich, you did an amazing job on this bed and it looks beautiful. What im woubdering is hiw you attached the rail and drawer assembly to the head board and tail borad? Im in the process of designing a bed with a similar design for my boys. Im currently stonped on that part
Ken, thanks! As for how I attached it I used threaded inserts. To help with the weight of everything I made the entire middle section sit on the floor. Meaning I set the two middle pieces on end and attached the toe kick base with pocket screws to them making it one piece. Next I layed the whole thing onto the base and then I drilled two holes through the ends into each leg. I then used threaded inserts into the legs and attached it with bolts and washers. Since nothing is really weight bearing it is a really strong joint. We move it in and out to reach the back drawers to change out clothing or other long term storage.
In the pic of just the head board you can see the four threaded inserts near the bottom of the leg.
Really beautiful work Ryan. The detail of cutting out the seperation on the drawer fronts works so well.BTW - top right of your post, under the thumbnail, there is a view count and like count. You should see an edit post option there.

Thank you. I agonized a lot before cutting the drawer fronts. Really wanted to make sure I got it right.
Thanks for showing me that.
Great job! The walnut has beautiful color in it. The grain match just makes the whole thing pop! Thank you for sharing here on SimpleCove!
Thanks Sean. The air dried walnut definitely has some amazing purples and yellows in it.
Really nice work and very timely as I am about to start a similar triple dresser for my wife. I would love to see a pic of the carcass with the drawers removed. Also are those end panels floating?
Thank you Here is a link to my Instagram posts that show the interior with no side or rear panels. The second link shows a somewhat better? Pic with the drawers out. The panels are all floating inside. I would add photos but don't see where I can edit my post.
