Rex,

That 2×4 twin bed shown on your link looks like it could withstand a bomb. I think you could put wheels on that bad boy and drive it into battle. I’m all for that kind of construction myself but my wife prefers a little more frills. I think I’m going to go ahead with a plan I found on plans now.

Maybe if I just build one directly from plans I’ll better understand how it all goes together and then I can give a try at the design in the picture. It looks really easy to build but I have no idea how they put the pieces together because I can’t see any hardware. They did a nice job of tucking everything away on the inside which is a feature of that bed I like.

Hal,

Thank you for the suggested link. It’s a nice looking bed. I totally agree with you that beds are a simple construction. It’s the details of the measurements and how it all goes together that prevents me from just jumping in. I’m still at the stage that I need step by step plans that just tell me each step of the way. Doing what the plans ask is not a problem, I’m just lost without the guide.

The bunk beds will be my 4th woodworking project. I hope it’s not much longer before I can just walk out into the garage and start building something. Searching around for exactly what I want has been the lowest point of my projects. It’s very hard to find exactly what I want. Do you know of a service or individual I could show a picture to (like that bed) and they provide plans? I would love to build that for my kids!
