Well it has been awhile since I was on here last. Last time I starting telling you and showing you how I made my loft beds. Here is how I make the rest of it. After I have everything cut out then I put the rails togeter for the sides of the bed. Then I start putting the ends together by glueing all the dole pins into the 2×4’s. Then I put the ends together with the 1×4’s that I cut out. After that I attach the legs to the ends and put a support piece at the end so the legs won’t come in. Then the next few pictures I have on here is after it is all put together. But that is pretty much how I make that specific style. I have three different styles that customers can choose from. This is my mission style. You can look at the pictures and get a idea how I make them. I kind of got the pictures in different order than what I said but you can see the procecess. And the last picture is the finished product in the customers home. There is also a desk under it to. Enjoy.

Nice blog! A cousin of Len’s was just inquiring about how to build a loft bed for his son. I will have to send him the link to the blog. :)
