Building a New More Comfortable Bed

The short bed just didn't work out. The new arrangement will be two single beds, one down each side. Using 12"x48" pre-cut shelf panels with a laminate surface a simple but strong box is built that is 24"x6'. With extra room available to hang your feet over the edge stretching out shouldn't be a problem. Click on the link and see a slide show of my progress in this modification.
