Hello,

I would like to share with you a timelapse showing construction of a bunk bed for my son.
My father decided to build a construction based on his own idea and schematic.

I hope you like it.

Really cool, I like it. I can't watch the video fully (I'm at work :roll: ), what technique are you using to join the timbers? Dowel/Domino ?

I am wanting to create a much simpler bunk later this year.

ah

You'll see details while watching the video, but of course - I used dowels.

I was a bit concerned that the four corner posts were not meaty enough. Okay I guess for small kids but not so good when they get older.

Looks good though, I am not sure if it is demountable as it would be a shame to break it up to either move or sell in the future.

Well done though :thumbright:

The weight is distributed fairly on 6 posts, not 4 - solid wood, base of a square with dimensions 45x45 mm.
My wife (55 kg) can easily climb the bed and read the books with our son on higher bed :)

All elements are fully demountable, moreover - the ship prows are attached in a way that you can easily make bed longer if needed and reattach them.

Thanks for your comment :)

Yep, they have their uses but not sure I'd trust pocket holes on a bunk bed as I've seen a few youtubers do.

Thank to all of you for kind words. The movie is a tribute to my father's commitment and hard work.
