Normally I build my car beds in either red or blue. I had a request for one in black with white detail. We also put it on a drawer pedestal. As an added feature the child’s name was placed on the front license plate.

This is a fun project and turned out great! This was complete in August 2011

Here are some building pictures:

The graphics are designed on a computer and cut out using a special plotter style cutter.
