Staircase for loft bed out of 1x12?
I am trying to save space in the office/spare bedroom by using a loft bed with a desk beneath it.
I have found some plans for a loft bed, and also found one already built on Craigslist very reasonably priced. I would like to modify the end of the bed and use 1x pine for stair case stringers, and make each step into a useful drawer. There are pictures of this exact thing on the net, but no mention of what weight this staircase/drawer would support.
Any thoughts on the strength or sturdiness in this design? Tips? Lumber choice?
Would 3/4'' Plywood be a better choice?
