If sleek cars and a fast track inspire your child or grandchild, imagine how they will speed off to sleep in this authentic-looking race car bed! And, you'll be surprised at how easy, and fun, the whole thing is to build!
BONUS PLANS: For the child who is on the move during the day, why not tackle our classic roadster, soap-box style, go-cart, or our foot-powered fire engine. Both are perfect starter vehicles and are easy-to-build.
Only three sheets of 3/4-inch plywood are required for the car's body, so expenses are kept to a minimum. Better still, only common tools are required, most notably; a saber saw, table or hand-held circular saw, and an electric drill. All parts fasten with the simple aid of some glue and drywall screws.
An interlocking design is used for the bed's five main components (two sides, front, back and base) so the bed can be assembled and disassembled in a matter of moments without the use of any special hardware. Two shelves at the head of the bed provide space for a radio, books and other favorite belongings.
Drawn to full-size, the pattern for the race car bed required numerous sheets of blueprint size paper (and hence a slightly higher cost than normal) so all you need to know would be summarized in one complete and easy to follow package. For the resulting ease of construction, the extra investment is well worthwhile.
Designed for a standard twin-size mattress, the bed's overall dimensions are four feet wide, eight feet long and 2-1/2 feet high (measured to the top of the spoiler). Pattern No. KF11
