WOW, Well done. My dad made me one when I was a little boy. It was a spaceship, sailboat, iceberg, castle… I’m sure you’ll both have fun!

Nice work. My daughter would be so jealous.
How did you join it all together to be able to take it apart to move it into her bedroom ?

The bed attaches to the the dresser and desk with fasteners that come up into the four corner posts. I tried really hard to limit the number of visible fasteners. It took me quite a while to come up with a design for the bed posts but when it’s all put together it looks like a solid 4” maple post.

I like the bed but the bed room looks like it could use a little work
