Bunking


Creating something is always fun, and enjoyed more so when its a little different. 

This job was definitely one of those jobs.

The brief was to create a bunk bed for some super rad boys, to fit king single mattresses, plenty of storage and a built in ladder.   

The bunks were made from solid 18 and 32mm Maxi Film Face plywood. Due to its size (2400mm long, 2000mm high and 1200mm wide), the job had to be able to be dismantled and flat packed in order to be delivered and installed.  To date this is the largest flat packable item I've ever made.

The main frame of the bed and the upper mattress supports are made from 32mm plywood.  18mm plywood was then used  for all the shelving top and bottom. 

I always enjoy delivering a finished product to its new home, today was a blast.

Pretty cool having some little lads totally frothing with excitement on the new addition in their bedroom, a cool new resting place for them for years to come.

Didn't take long for the boys to fill it either!

Thank you, to the Wilkins, had fun on this one.
