Not going to say much since I put this one in my blog.

Mostly plywood, primed and painted. The headboard is a bookshelf, the front bumper opens and makes a small toy box. The largest, in terms of physical size, project I’ve attempted to date.

Allen, I bet it is hard to get you son out of bed! LOL. It turned out really nice and the bedding is a perfect match.

Beautiful job Allen
The paint job looks great too.

I,m pretty sure every kid would love to have a bed like that.

Great job. Heck, I’ll bet my 20-year-old would like it.

Cool bed! Really nice craftsmanship. The rear spoiler made into a bookshelf, clever. Maybe you need a #20 sticker (Tony Stewart?) on the side??

(My one claim to fame, I live in Columbus Indiana and so does Tony Stewart. I don’t watch NASCAR that much and I don’t know Tony at all. But I have been by his house once. I did see him in my place of employment a couple of times also.)

Great job on your son’s bed! Cool video of you son’s first look at his new bed!

Did you think this all up or was it a plan? Either way it is really good.

His response can be seen here if you don’t mind a YouTube video.
