This is a bunk bed made of cherry. All the joints are mortise and tenon except for the connection between the headboards and posts which use 5 mm dominoes. The ladder is held on by rare earth magnets which also registers the ladder into correct position. On previous attempts, I used dowels but it left holes in the stretchers when it was not installed. The only metal in this project are the magnets Thanks for looking.

Nice work, I like the magnet idea, could have used that about 5 years ago when I made this for my granddaughter.
