Humvee Toddler Bed With Toy Box
This will fit the standard toddler/crib mattress.
After cutting 29 1/2 gasket parts, side rail parts and toy box bases, I assembled them using pocket hole screws.
It is a good idea that you can use other screws or methods
Drill holes, glue, or cap the screw holes down with a wooden pile to prevent small fingers from catching the screws/wood etc. . .
Use the 3/4 \"material of these main frame members and save the 1/2\" material for the template below.
These PDF files were created using 123D Make.
This allows you to print pdf mode in full size and then re-print
Assemble them like puzzles.
I chose to glue the paper shape directly to the plywood of 1/2 and then approach the line with the puzzle and hand held sander.
After gluing the 1/2 truck profile parts to the outside of the bed frame, I decided to only paint the bed frame black and finish the profile parts with a clear natural wood finish.
Many Hummers are desert tan, close enough to the birch plywood I use. Wheels -
You can cut the wheel yourself using a jigsaw puzzle or a fixture/router, but I decided to skip this step because I found some pre-
Grind round item Wood at Menards for a reasonable price.
You are looking for wheels about 14 or 15 inch in diameter.
I put the bed frame up on the building blocks until the wheel looks at the correct height before connecting to the truck.
The engine compartment in front of the bed is a toy box.
The lid of the toy box is made of 1/2 material.
Soft-off hardware is a must-have for saving small fingers and great engineering.
The hardware comes with a chart to show the correct position inside the lid of the toy box. Doors-
You will notice that my original plan was to put the front door on the hinge and take the door off.
This seems to be a smart move for my toddler, let\'s face it, and many Hummers miss the door anyway.
I fixed the pipe insulation to the edge of the climb with a can of adhesive.
