no previous part Part 1 of Chi Omega Dorm Room series Part 2: Prototype 1 »

I am building a total of 17 beds for the Chi Omega Sorority house. There will be 10 single beds and 7 bunks. These bed are a different design. The regular singles will have a 80” tall headboard with just a couple shelves. They will have 23” tall drawer units on one side and doors on the other side and the foot for larger storage.

The bunks will be built with a solid panel on the foot and a headboard similar to the single beds.

They will all be built from maple wood with just a clear coat applied. I usually don’t build a prototype, but I don’t want to get all the parts cut out and have to make a modification across the board, so on this job, I’ll make a usable prototype. I’ll make the first one to see how it all flows. If modification need to be made I’ll make them.

Here is a Sketchup drawing of the single beds:

Congrats on the commission, Chris. Great to know that you’re keeping busy. These look like they will be nice beds for the student. Be sure to post the finished products.
