Oak may not be a popular boat building material in the real world, but in my world it make a beautiful bed. I’ve been working on a boat bed for the last couple days now. Most of them that I build are painted and I build them out of a combination of Maple MDF and pine. This customer, however, wants their in oak. I have built one before and that example (see oak example) is what the customer sew and wanted. I’m even going to do the same color scheme.
I framed out the bow of the boat. This will be a toy box. In the back bulkhead (like my boat terminology?), I cut in air vents, for that situation where big brother might stuff the little brother in there. Not writing from experience even though I wanted to as we were growing up.
I use a template to cut the top and bottom shapes. This is a template that I developed on the first on. I now have one for twin, full, and queen.
