Here are the bunk beds I just finished yesterday.

They are made of pine 2×6’s from HD. Why, because everything the wife showed me she liked was pine with a splotchy dark finish. I said, “shheeett, I can make that!”. So I did. :-)

Finished with Trantint dye(Dark Walnut) and poly.

So far the customers are very happy in their new beds.

Here is the blog on the build if you’d like to see more detail.

Thanks for looking!

Mauricio, it’s been fun watching the build. The bed came out perfect, and apparently the boys think so too!
Nice job.

So, how did the sleeping arrangements get decided? Do the boys time share the top bunk?

I was starting to wonder about this project. Seemed like you started it a year or two ago….lol.

Looks awesome man. Very modern and professional.

Very nice Mauricio.
That will get the visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads.
I hope you have lots of sugarplums. :-)

That stain looks fantastic, wouldn’t pick it for good old pine right away. Looks like fun, my girls are hankering for bunk beds, great that there are so many people with blogs around that I can stea-um, learn from…

wow this is strange, I commented yesterday but I don’t see it here, internet must have eaten it.

Thanks everyone for commenting.

Lee, the sleeping arrangements did become an issue. The little one wanted the top bunk but he moves way to much in his sleep and would have fallen out eventually. We had to fight with him the first night for him to accept the bottom bunk.

Woodfather, transtint dye is good stuff, it colors every part of the grain, not like other stains that dont soak into the denser parts. However painting them black might have been a better option.
