Bunkbed dowels question

Posted by amholzer (My Page) on

I'm not sure what to do. I bought a bunkbed from Rooms To Go about three years ago for our kids, and we kept the beds separated. We have a new baby, and need to put them together to make a bunkbed, but the dowels are nowhere to be found. Rooms To Go discontinued the model, so they don't have any in their warehouse. The model is Celulose Irani S/A Bunk Bed 8230. Does anyone have insights as to what I should do? I suppose I could just buy dowels on line, but I don't know the measurements, plus I am very concerned about safety.

RE: Bunkbed dowels question

Can't you just measure the diameter and depth needed?

See the link for bunk bed pins, or if they don't work, go to a local hardware store and get their steel rod in the right diameter and hacksaw it to length. I'm not sure this is the place for wood dowels, even if hickory and certainly not if nondescript tropical trash wood.

Here is a link that might be useful: bunk bed pins
