Cherry bunk beds are the perfect solution for two children in a room. A bunk bed will fill less and give your children more space in their bedroom to play. Here are the basics of what you need to make your own bunk bed. First you want to measure the room that bunk beds will be in. Be sure to get these measurements correctly so that there is no problem to mount bunk beds after assembly. You will also want to measure the mattress that will be appropriate within the framework of bunk bed to make sure that these fit so well. Measure outside the frame leaving less than 1/2 “on each side for sheets and quilts. When you have the measurements, you need 2 x 4 pieces of wood to the sides of each bed, the top and bottom of each bed, 4 pieces to fix the beds as well. You will also use layer of wood to cut triangles to place in the corners of each bed, as well as thinner boards of wood to lay across from one side to the other of the bed frame to support mattresses.
How to make a cherry bunk beds basics. You must follow the instructions for cutting wood and nails and glue pieces together. You must have access to a table top saw; ribbon saw, possibly a router, maybe a planer, a saw blade, an electric grinder, and chisels. You must make all your carvings and sand your pieces down and smooth all the rough edges. Using chisels to get into corners and hard-to-reach places. Make sure all the pieces are smooth and free from splinters and sharp edges.
You must spot all wood pieces and add sealant to the wood before mounting. Give yourself enough time for all pieces to dry completely before you begin to nail and paste cherry bunk beds together. Once all pieces have been cut, dragged and stained, you can begin the assembly. Would you like to collect the bottom bed first and then the frame that the beds will be on, then the top bunk. Do the top last because it will be too heavy to lift the frame. To the left, add your path to the frame.
