I made a bed just like this a long time ago for my son, but was recently asked to recreate one.
I had to dust off the Homemade Router Box Joint jig and remember how to use it.
The top frame is 1 1/2” material so it is a Rabbited Box joint,(3rd. pic.) so that it matches the lower 3/4” carcass material. White wood from Home depot, a little stain & 7 coats of Wipe-on Poly.
They need to pick out the Drawer handles.
Pic #4 never got rotated.
Thanks all for looking!

That appears to be one very accurate Box Joint Jig, making very impressive corners in your bed’s base design. Especially cut into that thicker wood, and along with the length ,down the sides. Could you tell more about that jig ?

Thanks for the comments Guys,
Neverenoughftackle- This Router Jig Plan can be found in Wood Magazine issue #127
Here is a Pdf. link I found for it- Wood Magazine #127
I had modified their plan a little so it would work with a 5/8” bit instead of 3/4”
Thanks for looking!
