If you have a passion for woodworking, the new Woodworking4Home by John Metz will be of great use to you. John is a professional woodworker from Montana, USA and he has spent years gathering the content and information for his web site.
What is Woodworking 4 Home web site? It is a site specially created to provide fine carpentry and woodworking enthusiasts with project blueprints.
It has the largest collection of carpentry project plans that you will ever see on the internet. The site has a collection of more than 14,000 blueprints in over 100 different categories.
When you have access to all the plans, you do not have to subscribe to any carpentry magazines or purchase design plans off the internet ever again. Imagine the amount of money you will be saving. The plans from Woodworking 4 Home will keep you busy for months if not years.
In this article, I will do a quick review on one of the DIY bunk bed plans from Woodworking4Home. It is a simple bunk bed design for kids that are both useful and attractive.
The unique feature is its side support wall. The design utilizes cut-outs in the side support walls of the bed that double as a ladder. Since most children like to climb, they will be more than eager to climb into bed at night.
At the head of the blueprint, there is a diagram of the completed bunk bed. At the bottom of the picture, there is a complete material quantity list for the bed project. There are a total of 38 main wood members for the design consisting of bunk cleats, bunk rails, corner braces, carriage bold and wind nuts.
Based on a quantity list, you will need approximately $130 to purchase all the building material.
How long will it take you to construct the bunk bed as per the Woodworking4Home plan?
The actual time frame will depend on your own carpentry skills set. If you have powered tools such as electric saw and drill, you can reduce the building time substantially.
All in all, if you are planning to make a bunk bed for your kids, the plans from John Metz will do just fine.
