as the title says a simple bedframe that i came up with to raise my memory foam mattress topper off the floor slightly. 
when designing this i had a couple ideas in mind: 
i wanted no hardware so it was easy to assemble and disassemble 
and i wanted to make it out of simple materials like 2x4 and just a single sheet of 4x8 plywood

i used:
Illustrator for all the layouts for my cuts.
5 2x4s
1 4x8 sheet of 3/4" plywood
1 3/4" dowel
compound miter saw
table router
table saw
panel saw
hand drill with 3/4" hole saw
drill press with 3/4" forstner bit
orbital and belt sander

all my wood working was done at TechShop San Jose

Step 1: layout

using Adobe Illustrator
I started with a rectangle the size of my mattress and a 4x8 rectangle 
first i wanted to figure out how to cut my plywood into as few pieces as 
possible to cover the area of my mattress.
Then I chose the placement of my 2x4s and the dowel holes to keep 
the plywood from sliding around.
<p>practical use of technology, science and IDEA</p>
Very practical. Thanks.
I really like how you've maximized the use of your materials here. Bravo.
