I've been asked to make a tut for the frame I made. I've never done one before but I'm going to give it a try.
Ok here goes.
This does include a Flynn frame but Im sure you could make that to without much trouble. I got it for my birthday and so it didnt cost me anything.
This is the material list.
This is for a 4 frame. You can easily make it an 8 frame.
4 1x2x8 poplar boards (if youre making an 8 frame you will need 6)
1 ½x½x8 square dowel
1 ΎxΎx6 square dowel
1 1 dowel rod
1 2 drawer slide (This is what I got, Euro-Style Self-Close Drawer Slide)
4 casters ( I got the stationary kind, They need to be the kind that mount on the bottom)
1 5/8x12x24 shelf (you could also use plywood)
4 ½ 2 hole pipe strap ( find that in plumbing)
First for the carriage. Take 1 of the 1x2x8 boards and cut two 2 sections Mount your drawer slide to the 2 sections and your shelf. Make sure you follow the directions on the slides. Cut two 14 sections from the same board. Take the 2 boards that you have the slides on and nail and glue to the 14 boards. Make sure they are square and your shelf slides easily.
Cut the 1 dowel rod into 2 36 pieces. You can make them longer if you want. This should let you sew from both sides. Center and attach the dowel rods to each side of the shelf with the 4 pipe straps. You might have to squeeze them together a little (its easy) they need to hold the dowel rod firmly with the straps. Measure the distance between your dowel rods and cut 2 -Ύ dowels to fit. Attach to the ends of the dowel rods with a nail and glue or screw.
Attach the 4 casters (wheels) to the bottom of the 14 pieces.
That should have your carriage.
