This is a loft with a simple loft in look, but a little more complex than it seemed. It is built from solid maple with a Red Mahogany stain from Minwax. It is a full size on top and an open play area on bottom. The vertical post have cutouts at the top for handles and they flair at the bottom to give it sort of a Asian feel. The cross supports act as the ladder and a slide was added for those quick exits in the morning.
For support the slats were built in a “T” configuration. Basically I added a board turned 90 degrees to get that end grain strength, since it was spanning a full size width. Also to make is stable and not to sway, I added a bottom 16”h board and used “T” nuts and bolt at the top/back guard rail.
