My first attempt at a bunkbed, sorry the pics are not that good. The entire frame is douglas fir 2×4, and 2×6. The side panels are solid pine. Client wanted polyurethane finish only. Turned out very nice and my client was very pleased. I hope to get a pic from him of the bunkbed set up in the cabin. Added client pic of bed in place at cabin, tight fit – but it worked.

I like your log cabin workshop, and would think it gives you inspirations! You could do a lot of carvings on the walls?

I love this site!!!! A good friend of mine asked me to make a couple of bunk beds for his cottage. He wanted a twin on top and either a full or queen on the bottom. I pulled up LumberJocks, clicked on the “bed” tab and told him to find one that he likes.
He wants me to make a couple that are very much like yours, but with the ladder on the end. I hope you don’t mind me borrowing your design.

-- Cheers and God Bless

I posted a pic of bed in place at clients cabin – can’t really see the ceiling, but I think he had 9ft ceilings. As you can tell, it was the space wall -to -wall that we had to fight. But all turned out well. The star was just part of my wife’s americana decor. That was our log house we rented while living in Fairbanks Alaska, and my shop was a one car garage, which is why the bed was sitting so close the the garage door. I didn’t have room to do much else during that build. I have since re-located back to SouthWest Ga – but sure do miss Alaska. Have a great day!
