So I have been making beds for the last five years. I think I finally came up with what I’m going to make to go along with them. I already make stairs, drawers, trundle beds, and bookcases. To go along with my beds. Some things I have thought to make is desks/chairs, play tables, side tray, toy box, and a tv stand. If anyone has any ideas just let me know.

Slides, rope ladders, chalkboards and what the hell, a tire swing ;)

I say some of these in jest but ya never know.

I’ve got you something, something I found a few years ago that I LOVED! It’s a guy who builds bunk beds, but all out of plywood, you may have seen it before, maybe not.

He has a modern style and a lot of really great ideas that you could incorporate into your designs. If I had a CNC I would absolutely have to make some of these, no doubt…...

I saw a picture in the last week or so that had two sets of twin over full bunk beds and the two top bunks had a bridge connecting the two of them. It looked like a pretty neat arrangement if the room has high ceilings and no ceiling fan nearby. If I run across the pic, I’ll post it here or PM it to you.
