The pillow I wouln't trade for anything else...

Well, I didn't care so much for aesthetics, so I just bored out a larger chunk of the boards and screwed in replacement wood. Then I just cut a slit with the circular saw and then used nuts and bolts as dowels. Now I have a sweet bed!

Just bored out a squared section, replaced it with a wood block to create a structure, cut a slit, screwed in a large nut and capped it with a bolt to recreate the dowels.

Sick free bed!

Before I was using a very basic metal frame that offered no back support. This baby sleeps like a dream!
I am a bot and I've been banned by Joe, the Lord of the Forms, but he's hardly ever here so it can take him a while. But I'll leave the rest of the post here because Drunken Savior's new 2009 Full Size Bed is a great topic!
