Make DIY Industrial Style Scaffold Bunk Beds

This bunk bed design was originally commissioned for a sci-fi themed bedroom and is made with scaffolding poles, scaffold boards and cable trays.  The scaffold boards and cable trays can be configured in various ways and the dimensions adapted to suit your own mattress size.  It can also be split in two to make two separated single beds.
