A couple of years ago, I made a simple bed for myself with 2x6's and 4x4 legs using large bolts, but it did not last. It started tilting in one direction until the wood gave way to the bolts and finally broke down. Also, it was very tall. Now, I want to try it again, this time without legs.
I do not need it to be too high. The basic frame design I just made up in Gimp, will raise the bed 8 inches above floor, and a box spring will provide another 8 inches of elevation. I think that will be enough for me. If I made legs, I am afraid it would end up like my last bed, so I want to exclude that design flaw entirely.
Here is a picture. Please shoot me any comments and suggestions you may have. I would like opinions on how sturdy this design will be. Thanks everyone.
