Creating a King Size Storage bed is no more difficult than a queen. You simply make the bottom bench wider! As Twenty-Six-2-Life [1] says, those drawers are huge! Thanks for sharing your photos, Kate.

Cutting Instructions: The drawer faces of this piece depend on your 1x10s being 11 1/2" wide. Measure and adjust the height of the bed to fit this measurement. Drawers are designed for undermount slides. If you wish to use side mount slides, adjust the drawer width for the slide clearance (normally 1/2" on each side of the drawer).
