I have absolutely no experience in carpentry and need your opinion.
My brother’s work involves lot of traveling and she has to stay in hotels in different cities. Most of the hotels have very soft mattress where you just get sink in. He has a persistent lower back problem which has aggravated in recent months.
I dont know if there is anything in the market but I thought making a folding plank set which can be put over the bed.
My question to you all is how I can join these planks? Are door hinges the best solution? I checked them the other day in Home Depot but found that hinges open more than 180 degrees. If I use hinges, the plank set when opened wont be 180 degrees flat. Because of weight two planks will make more than 180 degrees which will not be good for lower back. Is there any way I can make this plank set absolutely 180 degrees.
