I was commissioned to build a 12 drawer platform bed with 12 drawers and two storage areas at the head board for a great couple in Texas. The base is made from 3/4 inch plywood that is interlocked in the center and then the face frames, headboard and footboard are made from 4/4 Alder. I was asked to match a antique dresser that my customer already had which required a black crackle finish with a poly acrylic top coat. The drawers as well as the doors at the head board are all self closing and the handles were added at the customers request. This platform bed is designed for a bedroom with the intent of providing maximum storage, each drawer is 24 inches in length by 28 inches width and 7 inches in height.
