Bunk beds for my girls. Made of maple. I built up the the bed posts from several thicknesses of 3/4” maple to get the thickness. The head boards and foot boards are all frame and panel and mortise & tennon construction. the stairs are made from 1/2” plywood with locking rabbit joints to build up several boxes to create stairs. Since the bed would be painted I used white beaded hardboard for the head/foot board panels laminated back to back to give the same look on both sides. The bed rails are attached with the Rockler locking rail hardware recessed into the posts.
