  • 6 sheets of 21mm plywood

  • some leftovers of 18mm plywood
  • drawer slides
  • dowels
  • screws
  • glue

Dimensions can be found at attached sketchup file (was sketched for 18mm plywood, but actually was made of 21mm plywood)

    Step 2: Cutting

    Picture of Cutting

    Cut plywood sheets to size using circular saw

    Holes for drawers were cut using jigsaw, then cuts smoothed on router

    Step 3: Connections

    Almost all parts are connected using dowels and glue to avoid visible screws

    Used also screws where they are not visible

    Step 4: Frame

    Final assembly - parts are glued/ screwed together

    I tied it do it so, that there is no any visible screw, but it is still possible to break bed apart if needed

    Then painting - I guess hardest part :)
