My son needed a new twin sized bed, so we decided to build him a cherry trundle frame. It became a father and son project, and my wife helped a great deal as well. The headboard and footboard feature gently curved stiles, and solid cherry panel construction. A pair of xenon pucks offer just enough light for some evening reading, with a rocker switch mounted conveniently in the headboard. The trundle pulls out easily on 36” ball bearing slides, and six fixed casters offer additional support. The trundle box is built from poplar with dovetail construction. The trundle face panel looks like two drawers, and features hammered pulls. The bed accommodates two standard twin size mattresses. Through tenon details, and some walnut cross pegs complete the look.
