Weekend Project: Star Wars AT-AT Imperial Walker loft bed

star wars

NO FAIR! This lucky whippersnapper surrounds himself with the intimidating protection of a Star Wars AT-AT Imperial Walker every night as he drifts off to sleep. And while it could be argued that the Rebel Alliance did indeed manage to destroy most or all of the AT-AT fleet, let’s just admire the handiwork here and pretend none of that ever happened.

If you’re thinking of going for the Father of the Year Award yourself, there aren’t any explicit instructions as to how to build one of these yourself although the project’s creator has posted the following video detailing many of the steps:

Per Instructables:

This is a loft bed I made for my son that resembles an AT-AT Imperial Walker.

I searched the Internet and found scale models, cakes, legos, baby strollers and costumes resembling an AT-AT, but never found a bed that resembled an AT-AT. So I made one.

Since it is made from materials readily available at Home Depot or Lowe’s, I thought I would post a video/slide show of photos I took during the build process.

So there you have it. A nice little weekend project for everyone. Maybe a few weekends.
