Rather unique but what’s the purpose? The slats wouldn’t exactly make it portable.

I was unimpressed until the box was opened.

I showed this to my wife and her first reaction was “but where does the mattress go?” Baby please, go watch tv or something. This is a great hideaway design. Simple window seat or blanket chest by day and bed by night. A blow up mattress and you are ready for guest. Oh yea, I gotta make one of those.

This was posted here a while ago. The forum where it originaly came from is here

Knothead62 – It’s for Nobles to use during campaigns in medieval times and the slats are contained in the box.

Great design. Would like to know how long it took from idea to build.

Great design. I don’t think I would try to make one. It didn’t look that interesting until the sides were folded out.

I have seen this posted several times as it appear to be going around with many e-mail accounts as well. My first thought when I saw it the first time was, COOL!, the second and the concomitant thoughts after that was, where would I use this contraption; while camping, survival have to have… LOL… I like the futon; and a plastic under neat it, as I determined was all was needed to survive outside of my bedroom. Actually, the plastic would have been the best think to have for both above and below protection. If this is a survival guide or a positive camping experience, then it is a sad joke.

mrjinx007 – See my reply above at #6. The second link takes you to the forum where this came from and explains what it is and how and why it was made.
