By now, we’ve all figured out that dieting makes you grumpy and no one wants to spend their life counting calories or without another piece of cheesecake. There’s nothing like working on something positive and productive with a loved one.
We all have an opportunity to become better, to expand on what we do, and to try something totally different and new. Moms (well, most of us, hence the pink blog today 🙂 ) doesn’t mean that only our kids can learn.
I know that you will benefit from learning to use a few tools and have a few woodworking tricks under your carpenter’s belt.
I do is a direct result of my appreciation for you.I am that you give me an opportunity to pursue my dreams.
I thought the best way to start off 2011 is with a crash diet project. It seems at least every week someone asks for plans for a twin over full bunk. Warning – this is a big solid wood bunk bed. The bed parts can be assembled in the room, so doorways aren’t as big of an issue. Find the center of the marks and drill a 1″ hole, 3″ deep.
Then find the center of the bottom of the legs on the top bunk and drill a 1″ hole, 3″ deep. Use 6″ metal headless bolts or hardwood dowels to hold the bunks together through the drilled holes. Then on the top edge, mark the top edge in 1 1/2″ from the front top corner. Use a square to mark a line perpendicular to the top cut downward. Measure and mark the ladder sides and screw the rungs to the ladder sides with 2″ screws and glue. The ladder can be attached with metal brackets or by screwing from the inside of the side rails of the top bunk. Headboards for the bottom bunk, 2 footboards for the top bunk.
I am planning on more building and repurposing/refinishing projects this year.
We bought a twin over double for our boys last year.
I were hoping to build full over full bunkbeds. Would it be easy to convert this plan to a full over full?
Can you do full over full with these same plans?
Woodworking is a full body workout, it even gets your heart rate up!
