Made a bunk bed...

Post by JMG » Sun Feb 11, 2018 3:32 pm

Made this for my two youngest. Plenty wrong with it, at least a lot I would do differently if I did it again, but it's solid enough thankfully.

Do they fight over who gets the top bunk? Nice job.

We were lucky to have a great thrift shop near us whenever we moved. God always provided whatever we needed.

We just go by seniority for top bunk. Also, my youngest moves around when she sleeps like she's running a marathon....even with the railing up there I'd be scared she'd fall out.

God has certainly provided with other things. Much to be thankful for, for sure.

Well.... There wasn't a flat of beer and a roll of fence wire involved as far as I can tell. It's an above average bush rig.

Looks horrible. I can't believe you'd post a picture of that crap.
