This is a train bed that I built. I’ve built of few of them but this was the first time to add a trundle. Since I did the trundle I changed up the wheel detail a little. Normally I use vinyl graphic for the wheel. On this one I made them more three dimensional and attached them to the faced of the trundle.

Also there was no room for the ladder so I made the “wheel push rods” in a way that they could be used as the ladder.

This bed was finished in November 2015, using MDF, Poplar, and bending lauon.
