Bunk bed plans to build a twin over twin bunk bed and a set of huge heavy duty storage drawers. This 20+ page comprehensive plan explains how to select lumber, cut, sand, drill, apply finish and assemble a beautiful wooden bunk bed that is as solid and sturdy as those built by Bunk Beds Unlimited. It comes with a store-ready quick shopping list so that you can head right out and purchase the materials you need to get started. This plan makes use of widely available easy to obtain off-the-shelf lumber and materials. You can build it even if you have little or no woodworking experience using a circular saw, an electric drill, a power sander and a few hand tools. By purchasing our plan set you can build your own Bunk Bed saving hundreds of dollars. It is a great first woodworking project or family project.
This plan covers construction of the bunk bed only, or a bunk with two storage drawers. Free plans are available for set of three storage drawers or trundle bed on our free plans page. This bunk measures 65” tall by 81” long by 42 ½” wide and uses two twin-size standard mattresses. This model of bunk bed does not separate into two beds. (see Stackable Bunk Model). The finished bed will stand up to daily use for many years and continue to look nice. Many of the beds we have manufactured have been in daily use in hotels, camps, shelters and other institutions for 15 years or more, supporting adult weight and still look great.
The hardware kit has all hardware needed to complete the bunk bed only, or bunk with storage drawers or trundle bed underneath. It includes all fasteners and bronze plated furniture lags that give the bed a professional appearance. Additional hardware such as wooden drawer handles and heavy-duty carpet casters for the storage or trundle drawers is available by ordering the bed and drawers hardware kit.
Our hardware kits are higher quality, much more convenient and a better price than if you purchase the items at your local home center or hardware store. (*Please note that the lumber is not included in the hardware kit.*)
Price includes shipping on hardware kits to all 50 United States (others write for details). Great value!

I had been researching for bunk beds for some time. The units for sale in stores were very flimsy, and since my grandchildren are extremely active I wanted beds that would endure their gymnastics. These beds definitely fit the bill! We made two sets (didn't make drawers). The only thing we had to change was that after putting the 2x6's over a planer (to clean up the lumber and almost eliminate need for endless sanding which I had heard from others) the thickness of the finished was such that we had to buy slightly shorter hardware. It was a lot of work, but well worth it.
This Christmas will be the real test when they will be getting "product testing" but I am very confident that the bunks will hold up very well! Would definitely recommend.
