Plans and step-by-step instructions on how to build a Kids’ Racing Car Bed.

There are 16 pages in the downloadable PDF file.

This detailed plan-set with step-by-step instructions is in both metric (mm) and imperial (inch) dimensions.

There are clear plans, instructions, pictures, and drawings.

This is a compact race car bed and is a good size for kids up to the age of 8 or so. It does not take up nearly as much room as a standard single bed, so it is ideal for a room where space is a premium.

I made this for one of my grand-kids and it proved an immediate hit. I don’t think I have ever seen a kid more proud of a bed.

Sometimes there’s a need for a parent to climb in next to their little one for a bit of a snuggle or two. This design allows for just that. Although this bed is compact, an adult can still lie next to their child as there are no feet barriers – hence, longer legs and the feet of a bigger person can hang past the front, unimpeded.

It is made out of 3/4″ (18mm) custom MDF board for the car frame, and 3/4″ x 3 1/2′ (90 mm x 19 mm) wood for the bed base.

The size of it:

The bed base is 63″ (1575 mm) long and 28 1/2″ (712 mm) wide.
The overall size of the unit is 69¼” (1731mm) long, 31½” (787mm) wide, and 2ft (600mm) high.

Wood List:

In all you will need…
# 6 lengths of 3/4″ x 3-1/2″ (90 mm x 19 mm) @ 8ft (2400mm) long.
# 1-1/4 standard 8ft (2400mm) x 4ft (1200mm) sheets of 3/4″ (18mm) custom MDF board.

You will also need…
an assortment of screws, nails, glue, along with paint and any other knick-knacks you might want to add.

    This racing car bed was made by Roger from a buildeazy plan.

    Attached photo of my bed to your design. Made slightly wider so I could use Ikea slats for base.

    Many thanks – great fun.

    Hope Grandson likes it!
