This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in Dimensional Lumber Woodworking.

Hammocks are great.  Sleeping on the ground is nice.  I saw a guy sleeping while standing on the assembly line.  That's all fine but let's build a proper bed to sleep in!

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - it's a bed or bunkbed
  - sized for a human (adult or kid)
  - no paint, stain, plywood or man-made materials

To document your completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
- the wood you're starting with
- the construction partially underway
- the finished bed

My 14-year-old wanted a floating bed.  That is to say, a bed that appears as though it is hovering above the floor.  

This shows the cantilevering necessary for the floating effect.

To get this effect requires pimp lighting.  It's not technically part of the bed though, right?   :)  I hope the homemade quilt restores some balance.

Staff note (Mike Haasl) :

I hereby certify this BB complete and awesome! Plus your air badge in dimensional woodworking!
