Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: I Am the Happy Owner of 2 of These Bed Roller´s.
I got a bed that is 200cm long and 140cm wide. That means there are alot of unused space under the bed. I was searching the internet for a bed roller that could fit under the bed. I only found bed rollers that was half as wide as my bed.
Step 2: What Do I Need to Make a Bed Roller?
I started to draw a bed roller for the bed. My bed got a support leg at the middel. My conclusion was that i needed to make 2 bed rollers. My first step was measuring the bed.
3. length from the support leg
After the measuring i calculated all the plates of the bed roller.
Depends on what bed you have. You need to make your own choice.
Front: 1m x 34cm
Sides: 140cm x 14cm
Back: 14cm x 80cm
Bottom: 140cm x 80cm
Step 3: Materials
I chose to make the bed rollers in OSB wood. I think it looks nice and it is cheap to. Bolts, nuts and screws was given to me. When it was putting it together i was using normal wood glue and my screws. I predrilled to make sure the wood did not split in half.
I live in Denmark so it shows its marks on the price.
2x OSB 10mm Plates = 210kr = 30,96 dollar
12x wheel = 299,40 = 44,14 dollar
48x bolts = For the wheels
48x nuts = For the wheels
Total = 509,40 kr = 75,11dollar
Step 4: Alternative
If i was buying a complete solution. I could have bought something like on the picture. The only thing about it is that is only 100cm x 60cm witch mean i would have alot of unused space. The price for 2x bed rollers on the picture is 500kr = 73,72 dollar.
That means i got a better solution for the same money.
Step 5: Final Result
As you can see. I think i made a nice fitting peas. I now got much space for my tools and much more :D
