NOTE: CHECKING/CRACKING It’s normal for all cedar log furniture to develop some checks in the wood. Checking occurs as a log releases
moisture across or through the annual growth rings. It does not affect the structural integrity of the wood.
All logs which contain the heart of the tree will develop lengthwise cracks or checks. The check never goes
deeper than the heart.

Bed Rail
(Note: Two people are required for assembly. Headboard/footboard should be supported at all times to prevent falling.)
1. Bed rails have a tenon (tapered end of the log) on each end. Insert one end, or tenon, of Log Side Rail into the
2 ½” mortise (round hole cut into head and foot boards). Cedar Bunk Bed Assembly Instructions
Page 2
The bed rails have right angles cut into them the full length of the rail. The right angles on the bed rails have
a long flat-edge and a short flat-edge.
2. A correctly installed bed rail has the long flat-edge facing up. The slats for the mattress will sit on this edge.
When rails are correctly installed, the short flat-edge should be aligned vertically as seen below.
3. Insert one end of the Log Side Rails into 2 ½” mortises (pre-drilled holes) on front side of headboard. 4. This step applies ONLY to Double/Single and Queen/Single bunk beds
a. These beds come without secondary bed rails. The Bed Rail Mortises are located on the jut-out post.
Cedar Bunk Bed Assembly Instructions
Page 3
This step applies ONLY to Single/Single, Double/Double, and Queen/Queen bunk beds
a. These beds come with 2 secondary bed rails. These secondary bed rails are not quartered out
(no right angle cut in). The mortises are located on the main post. Above the bed rail mortises.
b.The secondary bed rails should be placed into mortises so the small end of the secondary rail is
directly above the large end of the bed rail.
6. Screw in a 6” lag screw from the backside of headboard into the Log Side Rails about ¾ of the way. (Do not
tighten completely at this time). 7. Insert the other end of Log Side Rails into 2 ½” mortises of footboard screwing in about ¾ of the way.
(Do not tighten completely at this time).
If you have a King or Queen Size Bed, assemble the T-Support (consists of qty 2 approximately 7”x75” boards
and 1 has a slot) – stand the other upright in the slot and screw together – approx height will be 8.25”. Lay
assembled T-Support on the floor in the center of the bed running from head to foot and centered between the
two side rails. 9. Lay all 5 slats onto wide flat portion of the Log Side Rails. Secure the slats with the screws provided
(1 screw on each end is sufficient.) Do not over-tighten the screws as this will cause the slats to split.

Important! For safety, the slats at the head and foot must be spaced so the gap to the headboard and to the
footboard is 3” or less. The remaining slats may be evenly spaced between the two end slats.
10. Insert Right Hand Assembled Bunk rail (as marked on rail) into upper mortises of headboard and footboard.
(All left and right rails are based upon standing at foot of bed and facing headboard). You may have to gently
tip either the headboard or footboard out slightly to get the rail assembly into the mortises.
11. THIS STEP Applies ONLY to Double/Doubles, Double/Queens, and Queen/Queen bunk beds.
a. After the right-hand rail assembly has been placed & tapped into mortises, you can place the 5 support
rails into the mortises of bottom quartered out rail of bunk assembly.
b. The flat surfaces of the rails should be facing up and level.
c. With another person lift left bunk assembly up into lower mortises of left side of bunk – be sure to have
top rail spun out to the side of upper mortises. The second person will place tenons of support rails into
matching mortises of left hand bunk rail assembly.
d. Spin upper rail up and into mortises
12. Repeat the process with the left hand Assembled Bunk rail.

Some tapping of support rails will be necessary to get the left assembly into mortises. Lift the Plywood over
the bunk rail (right or left side) and slip it into the top bunk mattress position (It may be necessary to slip
one assembled bunk rail out of the top holes to drop the plywood in). Important! For safety, the plywood
must be positioned so the gap to the headboard and to the footboard is 3” or less.
14. Using the 8- 2” Wood screws provided, screw the plywood down onto the bunk rail in 4 places on each side.
15. Insert 6” Lag Screws into all bunk mortises and lightly tighten.
Begin to tighten all Lag Screws securely. Starting from bottom bedrail, move from one to another in a rotation
until all 12 lag screws are securely fitted. Note: It is normal to hear some popping or cracking as rails become
firmly seated. Please make sure that you tighten completely this will ensure that your bunk bed will be VERY
17. Position log bed plugs into each 1 ½” mortise. This will conceal the lag screw heads and complete
your assembly.
