I’m a complete beginner, but willing to try anything.
I’d like to stack two bed platform frames I have on top of each other (to make it higher, they are the kind with a row of drawers).
We are a military family and will be moving in 6 months, with the possibility of moving every couple of years after that, so I’m looking for a solution that can be repeatedly taken apart without ruining the frames, as I’d like to keep this bed set for many years to come.
I know there are ways to not permanently attach bed frame rails, but where they are still sturdy, that “hook into” each other instead of using screws. (like the side rails hook into the headboard/footboard, not sure what the attachments are called.)
Is there any way to do that with wood “up and down” ? So I only have to screw the hook in plates once, instead of screwing and unscrewing the platforms every time I move the bed?
The only thing I can think of is toggle type locks spaced out every foot or something (like the kind under tables that lock the pieces together when you take leaves out) but no idea if that would even work, if there are ways to do this, just randomly throwing that out there.
If anyone has any advice, please let me know!
