My brother is recently having a new house built to better suit his family. I thought an appropriate house gift would be a bunk bed for his 3 year old son. Since my brother is a huge Volkswagen fan, what better than a VW themed bed. After scouring the web for ideas, and not finding anything up to my expectations, I decided to just design my own. This is the end result. I am pleased with how it turned out, and better yet my nephew just loves it.
The inside will be used as a play area here, but it will easily fit a single mattress for when he is old enough to have a friend over for a sleep over. I am designing bench seat futons at the moment.
I didn't start taking pictures until I was 3/4 of the way through the project. Kind of spaced it out to be honest. I will provide illustrations up to the point pictures were started.I have added the sketchup file I used in the design phase of the project. Some measurements may be off a tiny bit within it.If you think this project is deserving, please vote for it in any of the contests it is entered in.Make it Real ChallengeShopbot ChallengeI would love to win the Shopbot CNC. I could finally start my home business and produce many of the designs I have created on my computer.
A side note. Using the same basic design of this project, I am sure you could tweak some measurements and convert a boring old bunk bed frame into something great.
