plans and pictures for a wooden captain bed with maximal storage
This is a re-design of captain bed in a modern fashion.
The main design ideas :
warning : the original design documents are in french, I translated the essential parts
Here is a detailed presentation of this moder captain bed project.
A conceptual 3D model, simplified (no joinery, no handles, simplified textures, etc.)

The design took several months as the project is mechanically complex to solve with traditionnal joinery wihtout loosing storage space. Moreover, the dissassembled bed has to be easy to move and store.
The most recent version of the project design dimension are :
The project was built in 6 months using evenings and week ends. Overall, the project can be completed with common woodworking tools. Mixing power tool and hand tool is also possible.
Beside the 3D model, the build book contains illustrated parts, nomenclature and measurements.
Some joins are duplicated heavily, which make them lenghty to draw on wood. We propose numerical templates to be used with router or similar tools.
The main design advantage of this bed is the traditionnal joinery that allows full assembly / disassembly.
As shown in the assembly galleries, assembling bed is straightforward.
The bed can be dissassembled into small parts, such that no part is longuer than 2 meters, larger than 40 cm, and of more than 10 cm of thickness. Furthermore, each part is light enough to be carreid by one person. Overall, the bed dissassembled easily fit into a 2m x 1m x 0.3 m space. clik on image to see other images
