Here are the two designs for the bunk beds. I’ll eventually build 3 of one style and 4 of the other. The first on has a headboard similar to the single prototype that I built. The only difference is there is no fixed shelf at the top. I made it adjustable because of headroom. I also put an adjustable shelf at the bottom also.
The second one is a bookcase design. I tried to keep the same style. I lowered the height of the headboard and built a couple bookcases for each level. The reason all 7 bunks couldn’t be this design is because of space. This added 9” to the length.
The footboard is a plywood panel with a maple cap on the top. The cap is attached with dowels. This footboard and bracket placement can be used on both styles of bunk beds.
