First I would like to put in a shameless plug for another LJ, Rockyblue. Please check out his website at . Not only has his work been an inspiration for me, he has been willing to answer my questions.

These are Beetle Pine. 4×6 posts and 2”on the rest of the frame. The support boards are 1” thick.
Standard twin over twin. They have pets and wanted the bottom low enough so nothing could get under it.

I still consider myself in training so all comments are welcome.

Thanks for looking

Aww gee man you’re making me blush. I’m not a master yet either, but next month I’ll be diving in full time making furniture, so I’m excited about that. I agree with Roger, very beefy. Nice coloring too.

I am delivering it tomorrow. The lady that ordered it said she would decide then if she wants rails on it.

Nice job. Love your property and the surrounding hills. Looks a lot like where I live. The dog looks like he has it made!

Again, good job on this.

A very sturdy bunk bed that should hold up to young boys. That blue beetle kill pine is cool. I see octagonal planters to match the cool wishing wells you posted. Octagons are fun but I have a lot of trouble figuring how long to cut each section when I know the diameter I want to wind up with. Boys don’t need safety rails!

Nice Monte, looks rustic and very solid, I love how you manage to give each piece you do an earthy feel to it. Great job
