After making several sets of American Girl doll bunk beds (see the pink and white model above), I realized that I needed to do something to take some of the labor intensity out of the projects. By using my Kreg pocket hole jig and using pre-assembled cup railing from Lowes, I was able to come up with my “Generation II” American Girl Doll Bed (stained oak picture). The Gen II version is super easy to make with using only the table saw and Kreg Jig. The Gen I used dowel rods that I cut to length individually and then inserted into drilled 1/2” holes. The new bed has cut my time on project in half and produces a pretty good looking end product. I leave the sewing of the mattress pads and bedding to my very capable wife.
