How to build kids' bunk beds

Step 6. Make the two bunk-end units

The bunk bed joiner plan

Bunk bed joiners

Lay the bunk corner posts (h) on edge on a couple of sawhorses.

Place the bunk-end rails (j) on top of the bunk corner posts, position them and then glue and screw in place.
Refer to the drawing above for placement.

Use two screws at each end of each rail (j).
Pre-drill the screw holes through the rails (j).

Note 1: Ensure that the rails (j) are at right angles (square) to the corner posts (h).
Note 2: Ensure that the distance in between the corner posts (h) is the same as the overall width of the bed including the legs.
