Race car bed building plans,wooden marking gauge plans,plywood sizes - Try Out
My 3 year-old son was outgrowing his crib, so I thought I would make him a racecar themed bed. The whole bed was first coated with primer sealer, then topped with a durable gloss finish coat.
Build it yourself with help from this paper plan!This snappy looking Race Car is a cinch to build and with full size templates this car can be whipped out easily in a weekend.
The bed is designed for a twin-sized mattress, and the sides of the bed are designed for easy rout and repeat shaping to make the multiple parts match perfectly. To make assembly of the bed easier, we’ve provided four animations that will help you visualize the steps.
Beginning at the rear bumper, create the radius lines for the curved shapes of the car side (Photo 1). When one side of the car is ready, stack the car side on the next sheet of MDF and trace the outline; remove the finished side and rough cut the second side with a jigsaw on the waste side of the line. Place the pattern side (A) on a pair of sawhorses and stack the rough-cut second side on top. To make a duplicate window panel for the opposite side of the car, place the completed window panel on the remaining sheet of MDF--align the edges, trace the part, remove the template, and cut the window panel to shape using a jig saw, gutting on the waste side of the line. Place the seat caps (T) on the top and front edge of the seat assembly and secure with glue and clamps.
Place the seat into position; the seat will slip over the seat cleats (H) that are mounted on the sides. In the traced outline, you can locate and drill pilot holes for the screws that will be driven from the back face of the car side assembly. Place the casters so the edges of the mounting plates are about 1" from the edges of the toy box bottom.
