An early utility project for my youngest. Did this in 2003 from mail order plans – they are still out there at ‘’ I reduced the plans to 70% which allowed this to be a toddler bed using a crib mattress instead of a twin…..Today I regret that decision as he needs a bigger bed!
The entire project is 1/2 inch plywood + some 3/4 inch to build thickness for wheels and fenders.

That is sweet. I’ve made some car beds before but never with that much detail. Great job. They don’t stay little forever do they?

Carlsonator – sorry i didn’t see the post but plans are still available.

Cherry tree toys still has it. I had looked around a bit and saw other suppliers, but they said “out of stock”
