I have just about completed the main structure of the bed frame and
drawer unit. Still a lot of work to do but with a lot smaller pieces
and back to a single person job.
This is a picture of the end panels at the foot board end. The
elongated holes will allow the food board to attach to the bed frame
with a bit of deviation should the floor be uneven and for carpeted floors.
Yes, I cut these slots with my Domino. ;~)
Clamping the divider drawer/bed supports together after gluing and ready
to screw. I use a specialized jig to insure that the side drawer face
frames indexed properly with the drawer openings and also that the top
of the FF is indexed properly with the top of the drawer/bed supports.
Another view of this attachment process.
The assembly of the face frames and drawer/bed supports. I finally need
to attach 3 top supports perpendicular to the drawer/bed supports to the
top slot cut outs. And the same on the bottom middle and for the toe
kicks on each side.
And finally a drawing of how this will look with the extra top and
bottom supports, spacers, and drawer track/rails.
And FWIW I opted to go with MDO for the drawer/bed supports, anywhere I
will be using 3/4" thick ply material.
