We love getting emails from our readers, especially ones like Amanda’s. She’s a relatively new woodworker who reached out to us asking our help to create plans for a simple bunk bed that can be built out of 2×4’s. She was headed to the Dominican Republic on her very first mission trip to make 15 bunk beds for the Emanuel House, which is a school that offers a hot meal, bible study, educational instruction, and love to children in need in Quisqueya. We were honored to be able to help such a cause. While initially she was worried about tools and supplies, Amanda ended up getting some help from our friends at Kreg and was able to use the design that I came up with and simplify it even more to reduce lumber cost and build time! We are so proud of her!
