Introduction: Fire Truck Beds

About: I will not be active much, but S.C. convinced me to at least join and post an Instructable.

Way back when the boys loved anything with flashing lights, I built them these fire truck beds. The headlights light up with a flick of a switch (on the dashboard), and the smaller red lights on the front and back blink repeatedly. The "Grill" on the front opens up revealing a storage compartment. The wheels spin and there is a drawer on either side. Unfortunantly, the boys grew up and I had to give away the yellow one and dismantle the red one.

    I like the Fire Truck but where are the instructions? So much for going pro. It looks great...

    Really cool! My Boyz love trains and I want to make train beds for them, Have you made any/ How did you install the lights and are they twin beds?

    How did you create the curves on the front?

    I back cut 3/4 inch birch plywood to allow it to bend. That was before I learned of bendable plywood, which is what I would use now.

    Those are awesome! I love them - there shouldn't be age limits on having fun furniture.
