Bunk Bed

Bunk BedMy son lived in a mobile home while attending college.  It wasn't large, and space was at a premium.  My grandchildren needed bunk beds, but there wasn't room for a full size set.  He had a youth bed (crib sized mattress) with a metal frame (top), so I built a lower section to go with it.  It is made of pine.  The corners are two 2X4's glued together, and the stringers are 1x6's.  We bought common lumber at the home center, then planed it down and softened the corners.  This was an afternoon project that has served well for 3 years.  My son's family just moved into their first house, so the grand kids can finally graduate to twin size beds.
