Queen to twin bed conversion 2010 25 fb se

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f46/...se-107732.html

In reference to above article:

Does anyone have guidelines for cutting off the lower part of the closet? This will be at the foot of the new twin bed adjacent to the bathroom. Specifically, what type of saw do you use to cut off both sides of the existing closet ( the part that contains the drawers )?.

Thanks!

Clamp a straight edge for a guide. Use a fine cut blade. I just used a skill saw. Also I put tape where I cut as to not chip the laminate.

I left the drawers on mine and just shortened my wife's legs!

Thanks for your reply. It looks like you actually remove the whole unit (upper shelves and lower drawers) before you cut it. Is that correct?

Maybe the drawers can stay there, there's still about 5' 9" of length. How tall is she.

Thanks Coaster,

Managed to get the whole closet and shelves out and into my shop. Now working on rearranging the electrical stuff and moving the electrical feed from the old night stand to the new center one. 3D software sure helps to visualize this stuff.

Looking good, Coaster

What do you plan to do with the outlet that is hanging out of the front wall? I have the same dilemma - the outlet will be right at the top of the mattress. Evan in post #16 (http://www.airforums.com/forums/f46/...se-107732.html) took the inside panel off to expose the wires. That is way out of my comfort zone. Any suggestions?

Lou

Lol

Actually it was my wife’s idea, and we like it better than the queen. I had to put in another floor so it was easily taken apart and put back together.

Did you have to purchase additional matching plywood to do the conversion or was there enough to simply reuse it?

There was just enough of the wood laminate for the conversion. We did end up with a few extra white laminate pieces that we saved. We had to buy wood ( birch) for the top of one bed and a 1” piece for the night stand top. We also bought a sheet of laminate for the night stand that matches the the dinette.
