I made these bunk beds for my grandchildren in California. I used white ash throughout, and finished them with clear, water-based urethane. They break down into two identical twin-sized beds by interchanging a headboard and footboard on each. The slide turned out to be too long for the room, so it’s been relegated to the basement storage area.
The beds are shown in our basement. I then had to find a way to get them to California. Fortunately, I have a friend with an enormous refrigerated warehouse who ships stuff all over the country. With the help of his foreman, we broke it all down, shrink-wrapped the parts and shipped it with one of his shipments. Reassembly in California was easy.
Now I have to make another set for my other grandchildren. At least they’re local – no shipping required. This time I’m using maple.
