Three Fatal Mistakes Made When Building A Bunk Bed --------Did you know that over 36,000 people are injured every year due to faulty bunk bed design and usage? That number is growing each month because of improper construction. In this article you'll learn the three fatal mistakes when building a lofted bed, and what you can do to reduce the risk of them happening. Remember, bunk beds are the most dangerous type of furniture you can buy or build, so you should learn everything you need to know to keep your family and friends safe. Fatal Mistake #1: Thinking that you can do it alone, without any type of plan. This is perhaps the most common mistake made when building furniture (or building anything for that matter). This becomes especially risky when building a lofted bed, since a collapsed bunk bed could severely injure or even kill users. Make sure you find top rated plans, diagrams, and instructions before you begin. I'l suggest what I've used for years at the end of this article. Fatal Mistake #2: Using old, warped, or low quality wood/materials. When you are building your new piece of furniture, make sure you have the highest quality wood and other building materials. Don't simply use old materials, simply because you have them lying around. If necessary, go to the store and buy new, sturdy wood and materials. Further, you should use the highest quality tools you can find. Most people won't need to buy new tools. Fatal Mistake #3: Not following directions. I've built several pieces of furniture and despite my high level of expertise and experience, I've found that projects go much smoother when I simply follow directions that someone has already tested. Why would I try to reinvent the wheel, when someone has already found the best way to do it. Again, it doesn't matter how well you follow the directions if you have a ineffective plan. I suggest that you find a professional source of high quality bunk bed plans to build your bunk bed, which will save you hours of time, hundreds of dollars (compared to buying a new bunk bed), and loads of energy. Remember, lofted beds are one of the most dangerous types of furniture. If you avoid making the mistakes mentioned in this article your project will run smoothly.
