This is a bed I made for my four year old daughter. It was my first big project and turned out quite well. I got the idea from a furniture store and went home and came up with this design. I also built it to be disassembled somewhat easily as I am in the Army and plan on moving often.

Very nice and that one is going into my Grandkids file for future reference. I am not a grandpa yet but I know that one of these days I will have a few projects to build for them.

I really like the design that allows the use of the floorspace for playing. There never seems to be enough floor space in a childs room.

Looks great, and the steps are much better than a ladder for the younger kids. Does your base have a woodworking shop available to you? When I was in the Navy the Special Services Dept had one on most of the base’s as well as auto shops and ceramics. It was a great place to be able to use some of the tools you didn’t have room for or the budget to buy them with.

My base does have a woodworking shop but I have never used it. I enjoy being able to start and stop a project whenever I want in my own garage.
