I could have this video running and build a desk before you finish stalling for time and over explaining every detail about such a simple task

A 2 x 4 is actually a 2 inch by 4 inch rough cut before it is run through the planer. The planer takes a half inch off the 2 inch side and the 4 inch side to smooth it down before it is shipped to the retailers. But most old the houses were built with rough cuts that are actually 2 x 4's Straight from the mill. They were very rough with no smoothness at all. But they measured exactly 2 inch's by 4 inch's. I thought I would pass that by you. But anyway I want to thank you for this tutorial. This is by far one of the best step by step tutorial that I have seen on youtube.

I’m going to try to make one of these but add on a hutch with a light and some casters.

What is that 3rd saw that’s not a miter or a table saw called?

The concept is very nice, but I would suggest you consider pocket holes instead of screwing into the end grain. With time and moisture changes, your screws may eventually have an issue with holding. For light duty this may just be just fine. You may want to add a horizontal member under the top to resist tension from the top being loaded as well. Structurally, you can have the same amounts of wood, but choosing where to place them will make this both stronger in load handling and more durable in service life.

John Wills says:

Why not use pocket screws for a little extra strength on those vertical faces?

Mr. Hostility says:

Ty! Nice basic build for beginners. Well explained.

I'd love to see a bunk bed build for twin sized mattresses. A lot of people would benefit from it I think.
