I think us "heavyweights" might have trouble with 1" thick lumber whether we
used rope or slats.
If I remember correctly, Agnar made a single bed that used slats for Maria
de los Santos. But I think it used 2" lumber for the frame and was a single
rather than a double.

How about it Agnar, if you're getting email again, any ideas?
