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
Illustrator for all the layouts for my cuts.
1 4x8 sheet of 3/4" plywood
1 3/4" dowel
compound miter 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
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.
