>Finished Loft Bed….Finally!


 Well after way to long working on this bed I finally finished it and my daughter loves it.  It probably would have been much simpler to just use smaller posts instead of glueing the three 2×6’s together and then cutting them down or to not have ripped all of the 2x material down so that…well they didn’t look like 2x material but I am really happy with the results.  With the head and foot boards mortised, glued, and lagged together they are really strong.  I notched the side rails to form a tenon so that they slide back into the mortice cut into the head and foot boards and installed lags to secure them in place.  The end result is a bed that is easily disassembled but very sturdy.

The loft bed is great for our daughters room because it allows her to use the space under neath as a play area and saves space.
