I had about a week off classes over Thanksgiving break and the weather was lovely so I shot my wad of cash on some 4 x 4's and made a bunk bed I had always wanted to make. I made all the joints of mortise and tenon style. The bed has 6 18"deep drawers under each bunk. Now I can throw away the rinky dinky trash dressors in my room and me and Chippy can store everything that was in the dressors in the bunk bed drawers. This bed is too heavy. Me and Chip can barely lift it up. But at least one of these nights after a heavy snow when my 70 year old matchstick, chicken-coop roof falls in, Chip and i will survive thanks to this grotesque mamoth of a bunk bed I have made.
