I have just finished these beds for a customer of mine. They are made in Pine with a finish in acrylic varnish. The frames are held together with coach bolts through tennons into the posts. The top bunk is held onto the bottom with 2” dowels which will have screws driven through to hold them in place. Below the bottom bunk are three drawers and below those is a pull out. I did make a mistake on this build though and didn’t allow enough room below for the pull out, I was 1” too low so had to make some feet to raise the bed. I then had to trim down the top bunk 1” to compensate for this as the ceiling isn’t that high. I suppose that will teach me to measure twice in future. Once it is assembled on site the bolt holes will be covered by small tapered plugs I turned up on the lathe. Thanks for looking.
