This is a pair of boat beds that were going in the same room. There were completed on 5-13-2008. They are both twin size with twin trundles. The front “bow” opens up for a toy box. The blue is our standard color and the pink was a color I selected for the customer to compliment the blue.

Here are some building pictures:

Looks great! Are you using regular plywood for the bow or bending plywood (wiggle wood)?

I love the concept, the storage and hide=a=bed is briliant. One question, as a dad who has made too many trips to the emergency department with my kids, isn’t the front of the bed kind of pointed? I know it is a boat, so maybe i am being paranoid. looks great

Thanks romansfivefive. It is not a pointed as it looks. I do break the edges a little. It wouldn’t hurt to round it over a little more. I’ll keep that in mind on the next one. Thanks for the observation.
