Additional Craft Information:
Wooden beds and bunk beds are expensive especially the high quality ones, so to save yourself a packet why not build your own wooden bed. Before you start thinking that you are not skilled enough to do this, you are as long as you have the right easy woodworking project plans.
DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape
DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers
You most probably have all the tools at home, you will need a hammer, drill, screwdrivers, wood glue, sand paper and of course nails and screws oh and I nearly forgot, some wood.
DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife
DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint
You will also need a set of woodworking plans, these plans will have all the information you need such as types of timber to use, measurements for each piece and a step by step assembly diagram. This
makes them an essential part of the process.
What I like to do is print off the easy woodworking project then number each piece of wood on the plan. I then cut each piece of wood and number that ad well. Then when it comes to assembling the wooden bed or any type of wooden furniture for that matter, it's a piece of cake.
Ok I guess that to a pro carpenter these plans would not be needed but I found them extremely useful when building my wooden furniture. Once constructed sand down your project until it is as smooth as glass then varnish. Now stand back with pride and look at your masterpiece, which
will not only look better than the ones you saw in the stores but also cost about a third of the money.
So next time you see a wooden bed don't buy it, make your own.
