Twin Platform Bed With Trundle – Trundle beds are beds that include thin frames, mattresses and box springs without leaving space for storage drawers below. In some cases the drawer under a trundle bed includes another mattress, allowing the bed to effectively fold in size. In others, the drawers are for storage only. Building your own trundle bed offers a way to create more storage space or add a temporary sleeping space to a bedroom.
A twin platform bed with trundle with drawers can have a large single drawer, which contains a single mattress or a series of storage drawers that can be opened from one side of the bed. The rails for the drawers must be associated with the bed structure legs near the point where the floor meets. Wheels provide additional support for trundle bed drawers, by allowing them to slide along the rails, but also roll on the floor below and next to the bed. Most of the trundle beds are made of wood, which offers the most options for a homemade version.
A sheet of plywood is appropriate for the frame platform and any common wood furniture, such as oak, pine, and cherry, can form the legs, headboard, and sides of the bed. The drawer can use another sheet of plywood, slightly smaller than the one that serves as the twin platform bed with trundle of the frame, and the sides from hardwood or plywood with a veneer finish.
