I made this for my nephew about 5 years ago. It was my first piece of furniture and used my first mortise and tenon joints in it. The mortise’s are all cut by hand as I didnt have a mortiser yet. Thankfully the pictures and stain hide most of my sins the joints are far from perfect. It is made of poplar and (I think) birch ply for the panels. The stain is Verathane gunstock and finished with wipe on poly.

Thanks for looking

I would love to get the dimensions off you for the loft bed.
My oldest is on his way to college with his best friend and I have been asked to
build two of these beds.

If it is still standing after 5 years of service, I think the joints pass. Great job
