This is a fun project that I designed and built for my three-year old nephew. Twin-sized loft bed with three drawers and a rock climbing wall along the side. My next project is the mirror of this one for his twin brother.

Made with mostly Pine and Fir. Stained with a Walnut stain and coated with several coats of Varathane.

Looks really nice. The rock climbing is a nice added touch.

That’s an awesome idea for the side. That’s got to be the coolest ladder up for a kid.

Thanks. This was a lot of fun, since it was the first big project that I designed myself. Amazing amount of design flaws as I was building, but thankfully they were all too big, rather than too small and I was able to fix without buying more wood.

Second bed should be a piece of cake, since I have all the bugs worked out.

So you are the COOL Uncle! I like how you stepped the upper portion of the rock wall and gave him something to hold on to while going over the top. How much weight will the ‘rocks’ hold? Welcome to Lumberjocks and thanks for sharing!

CFrye – Thanks. The rock wall holds me, and I weight 185. My nephews are 3, so I think I am safe. lol

Totally cool loft bed! Like the awesome design especially the rock wall and drawers. Great build and finish. I’m sure the kids will have so much fun with it.

Have your say...
