DIY design double loft bed ‘AnaXL’ furniture plan

Double loft bed Ana: loads of room!

This two person variant of our beloved loft bed Ana looks bold and daring… but you really can make it yourself! The condition is that it needs to be fixed to a wall along the long side – then it will be as solid as a rock. Because the uprights of this loft bed are set back from the corners, the design has a pleasant lightness to it.

Build two person loft bed ‘AnaXL’: make it with our furniture plan!

This double loft bed is made entirely of sheet material, including the uprights. If you opt for plywood (the most obvious choice), then you’ll get to see a nice grain pattern throughout. Some parts may also be made of MDF. MDF is a good choice if you want to paint or spray the furniture in an opaque color. This piece of furniture derives part of its stability from the fact that it is attached to the wall, on the long rear side.
To cut the panels, we recommend using a circular saw. You can also have this done by your timber supplier.

The design

We have naturally tried to make the design as beautiful as possible. For this double loft bed, we have taken particular account of a few things.:
We have tried as far as possible to hide all screws. For screws that remain visible, you’ll find instructions on how to camouflage them. We also describe how to make connections with dowels in some places, so you do not need screws at all. If you want to paint the bed, you can neatly hide any remaining evidence of screws with help from some filler. In our furniture makers tips we describe how you can do this.
We always try to make our furniture as efficiently as possible from standard size sheet or board material. Double loft bed AnaXL, with seven meters of shelves, can be made from five standard 122 x 244 cm sheets.
Finally, the design takes account of the capabilities and limitations of a typical DIY’er and their tools. If you have a hand saw (and in some cases a jig saw) and a drill and know how to handle them, then you should be able to make all of our furniture. If you have access to professional tools, then of course it will be even easier.

… adjustments

As you might have already seen in the photos of finished furniture, it’s really easy to make changes to the dimensions and/or design. The clear cutting list and design drawings help to give you the confidence to make any changes you like.

The manual / design plan and drawings

The downloadable manual is in the form of an A4 booklet for you to print out yourself. At the start you’ll find a list of necessities, such as the wood (board or sheet material), screws (size and quantity), glue and any other parts. Also listed are the tools that you will need and a cutting list with dimensions of all the parts that make up the piece of furniture. There is also a cutting plan, which shows the most optimal way to cut the individual pieces from standard sized boards.
Each furniture plan contains a number of relevant tips about choice of material, sawing, screws, glue, sanding, painting, varnishing, etc. When dowels are given as an alternative, there is also a detailed explanation so that you can get started with full confidence.
Finally, there is a detailed step-by-step plan for the construction of the furniture, with clear diagrams and simple explanations.
