Yet Another Bed Post...

Beds seem to be a popular topic. A couple days ago, a friend and I were talking about the Murphy-style bed posting. They mentioned seeing a different take on a folding bed on another website. I decided to take a look. They call it a toggling bed. With some time to kill, I drew up my own version in Sketchup.

There is a back piece to support the mattress while vertical. They also mentioned some rope or bungee cords, secured to the frame to help hold the mattress to the platform. This could easily be accomplished if your mattress has the carrying handles on the side, or by running a rope over the mattress at each end. While I didn't use pallets in this design, it did appear that their version made use of oversized pallets.

 

This would be perfect for a dorm room, kid's bedroom, guest room or maybe even the break room at work.
