This bunk bed with stairs I made out of pine. I stained it in Red Chestnut which is a minwax stain. The only problem I had was when I got it to the customers house the stairs wouldn’t fit in the room. So I had to take the top rail off of the stairs then it fit into the room. The stairs also has cubby holes and two drawers underneath the stairs.

Nice design and execution, Nate. You seem to be getting a good even coverage with that stain. Are you using Stain Controller first?

Truthfully I haven’t thought about using stain controller first. Would it help with it.

That’s a great design, and beautiful build. Make me want to have another child so I can build one.

Hi nate i have a request. i am a single dad with a young boy that lives with me. i currently live in a one bedroom apt and i want to make a twin over queen bunk bed with stairs (i like the stairs with a handrail that way it is safer for him to get in and out of the bed) do you have the plans for this bed? if so is their anyway you could send them to me. it will be a lot cheaper for me to build a bed rather than purchase one. the ones i have seen have all been around 1500 and to be honest i cant come up with that kind of cash. this is going to be a project for me and my son to do and we are going to have my dad help us. We try to include my dad in everything we do because to be honest he has a rare form of luekemia called Chronic Lymphocytic luekemia (CLL) and we spend as much time with him as possible. if there is a fee for the plans please let me know how much. one thing i want to change is rather than little shelves on the side under the stairs i want to put a computer desk there for my son.

Thank you again for your assistance

I am looking to build something similar to this. Do you know about how many board feet of material you used overall? Also, how thick did you make your corner posts?

Have your say...
