This is a boat bed that I finished in October 2015. I added some extras like, a mast, crows nest, gallery rail on the headboard, and steering wheel, and portholes. At the last minute I changed the steering wheel to a larger one (see last picture)

It has the standard trundle under the bed for an extra bed. I’ve built this in every configuration you can think of. You can see more example on my Boat page.

Here are some building pictures

Really nice projects.
I bet you could build a boat with your eyes closed now. LOL
I just went through to see what you have made and I found a boat, train, submarine, car, and I kept thinking there ain’t no planes but yep there is.
Still need to make a helicopter bed. LOL
Very fun projects for sure.

That’s a great bed—I would have loved to have one like this when I was a kid!
