I slightly modified the Full/Twin storage bed plans to place the top of the cubbies on top of the vertical supports, rather than butted up against them. The cabinets were assembled using glue and pocket holes and screws. The foot board cabinet, being fully exposed, received pocket hole plugs to conceal the holes. I also employed threaded inserts for the cleats and also for attaching the cubbies together. This way, the bed can be assembled/disassembled for easier movement in less than 10 minutes, without leaving any stripped holes or damage. this project used oak and oak plywood througout, and both stain and polyurethane to finish.
