Does it come in Seafoam Green?
you're going to mod that, aren't you?
I was going to make some smart alec comment about how come a guy who does "not fix, repair, assemble, or build jack shiminey." happens to have his own allen key. The I remembered the room full of guitars at my house, and thought better of it.
Nice job, I had a pretty hard time emotionally when I disassembled my kid's bunk bed to make room for a normal, bigger one. Enjoy the awesomeness. It's a great place to hang out with your kid.
Now, cover it in tweed!
Awesome. I’ll soon be assembling a similar bunk for my daughter...
You earned big dad points for doing that. It's the little things that kids love. Beer deserved.
My dad built me a bunk bed when I was 10, and it was one of the best days of my young life. You did it!
I can’t build anything square but I can build boats. So when my son graduated to a toddler bed, I made him a miniature flats boat that held one of those small mattresses.
I made it to be kid-proof, so it came out about 200 lbs After my kid outgrew it, I had to find some other fishing idiot to take the bed for their own child. Plus they had to be really strong to pick it up.
Thanks for prompting the dad memories, JD
Nope. Not this guy.
Good job, JD.
Just thought I’d that I’m the same way. Almost no job is too small to hire a professional to do. I have on occasion assembled a small table or shelf but only by necessity.
I have friends who have mocked me, much like those on this forum who judge those who choose not to assemble partscasters. Some of my mockers are talented but others have found themselves in over their on DIY projects. Thus, it is they who become the mockee and I who become the mocker!
Nice job but one does not achieve "Dad Level: Elite" until you start with Miller Time first and then build the loft bed.
Seriously, good job dad!
...welcome to the club!
Ya got er' done!
Ash or Alder?
I think no matter what the topic is, that will be my stock reply from now on. Or until it's not funny to me.
The more you do of this kind of stuff the more you'll realize how satisfying it is to do some things yourself.
My X father in-law is the king of do it yourself. Though I loved my dad a lot I learned a ton from my X's father and there are very few things I'm not willing to try to tackle. The more I do the more I realize how many things aren't that hard.
that's not how book shelves are supposed to turn out... are you sure you followed the plans?....
As one who try’s to do it all, good job Dad. I’ve found that kid stuff is the most important. Me being annal about specs would have the tape measure out to be sure it’s square and the measure the threads to find a torque spec and be sure that it’s tight. Oh and a Sharpie Mark to signify being tightened to spec and measuring how square it is assembled.
I look at it this way- I don’t hire singing guitar players to front/lead my band. Cause that’s what I do. I have decades of experience, and I’m damned good at it. The chances of my finding somebody better than me, who wants to work for me, is pretty near zero. When you want something done right, you get yourself a pro.
I’m not a mechanic. Or a plumber. Or a carpenter. Or an electrician. Or anything else. The absolute best chance I have to get any of that work done quickly, efficiently, correctly, and with a very high level of quality, AND without me getting hurt or just ruining my day with pure frustration, is to hire a guy that does what I need, and does it for a living the way I do music. They’re always worth it.
I also don’t see that weird correlation that dudes seem to manufacture between fixing and building stuff and my masculinity. Wisdom to me is more important than pride, and wisdom to me is getting the right guy for the job and having it perfect the first time.
