Bunk Beds. Friday , September 29th , 2017 - 06:50:10 AM
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.
There are federal regulations regarding bunk beds, so you`ll want to make sure that whatever bed you choose meets the regulations. We`re talking safety here, and things do happen. But you certainly wouldn`t want a bed that doesn`t meet the regulations, so make sure that the one you buy, does. Most accidents with bunk beds happen to children under the age of three. Many of these accidents can be avoided by having safety rails on both sides of the top bed. If one side of the bed is against the wall, that can be sufficient-but it must be against the wall. There are also regulations regarding headboards. There is a link to a page with the regulations at the bottom of this article for those who wish to read further.
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.
