For Christmas, my daughters (almost 6 and almost 3) asked for a bunk bed for their dolls. I’m a beginner who owns practically no tools – I’m working on that – but I found this simple pattern and decided to give it a shot. The only tool I bought for this was a Kreg jig mini. I made a couple of cuts with my dad’s old circular saw, but mostly stuck with hand saws and a miter box. I can live with its imperfections – the joints aren’t quite square and the top of the ladder rail isn’t flush with the top of the bed rail – and I learned a few things along the way.
My wife sewed the mattresses, pillows, and quilts. It was great to give the girls a gift that we worked on together, and they love it!
