This is modified version of a boat bed I build. Normally I build it with a bookcase headboard. This time the customer wanted a flat headboard. I also put a trundle under the bed.

The bow of of the boat bed lifts up and can be used as a toy box. I put a couple heavy duty lid supports to protect those fingers. Since the toy box it is so big I cut vent holes, just in case a child is to get inside it.

This bed as built in August 2015.

Here are some building pictures
