Topic tags/keywords: box bed portable

Someone sent this link to me knowing I love woodworking. Has anyone else seen it? It’s really imaginative and useful, I think. I had to share it.

Of course, you’re still left with the problem of where to put the mattress. Neat design, though.

That’s the best definition I have ever seen for “thinking outside the box”, but I would coin it as “thinking inside the box”.

I was wondering about the mattress issue, too. I google searched for it before I posted it here and couldn’t find it, but I’m not surprised someone else already did…LOL. I think it’d make a great puzzle, wouldn’t it? And a bench when not in use, maybe.

That’s pretty slick! If you could find a spot for the mattress you could use it as an outdoor lounging bed during the right part of the year. It’d be nice to watch the stars and meteor showers!

Wow, what a great addition for a hunting cabin. You could roll up the mattress and put if on top of the box.

I haven’t seen it but it’s quite creative and looks to be well done.
