xxtk. Bunk Beds. September 29th , 2017.
Donco Bunk Type Bed Twin over Twin Mission Style in Honey with Stairway and Drawers. With its solid wood construction, this bed provides a cozy touch to your room. It has been designed for the purpose of providing comfort and maximizing space. You will find the beds equipped with functional drawers. Unlike the traditional bunk beds with a ladder, this one has reversible stairway that also doubles as an under bed drawer.
The other alternative to hold the mattress up is called a Bunkie board. A Bunkie board is basically ¾ inch plywood cut to the size of the box spring. It sits inside either the metal bed frame, or the wood bed frame, and supports the mattress. If you have a box spring you don`t need a Bunkie board, but if there is not a box spring, the Bunkie board is what supports the middle of the mattress. We sell Bunkie boards if people want them, but a lot of people just cut their own. It`s up to the buyer.
Bunk beds built to those regulations are generally built to hold an adult weighing up to 250 pounds. If you are pushing the limits, try cedar instead of pine. In the beds we sell, the cedar logs are 5 ½ to 6 inches in diameter, while the pine is about 3 ½ inches in diameter. They are both built to federal specifications, and the pine bunk beds are very solid and strong, but if there is a question in your mind, go for the bigger logs. And of course, you can always put the big fella on the bottom, too.
Anyway, before you begin building your bunk bed, with your new plans that you have, build it in the actual room that the bunk beds will go in. Believe it or not, many people start projects without accurately measuring the room into which their project will go. You will need more things than I can tell you in this short article. The plans will tell you the right drill bits, nuts and bolts to use. It will also be your choice so far as which wood to use, but oak is always a good choice. Go with your preference, and what you`re used to working with.
The plans included with these beds begin by telling you to construct each bed separately, and then, in a reverse Siamese-twin kind of operation, how to put them back together. The bunk beds, when stacked, should be as solid as the single bed unit by itself. This is usually easier said than done. Next comes supporting the mattresses. When it comes to the wood required for the job, plywood will work, but why not use back springs to make sure your child`s bed is durable. They will be sturdier, but also provide a much more comfortable slumber for your kids.
