I need the help and ideas of the woodworking gurus out here, I have a space between the bed and headboard that keeps stealing my pillows and need to close it off. I thought about pocket holes in some cleats and just lay a board in there. Or maybe order some tracks for sliding doors. I need to be able to get back there for all the stuff plugged in. It’s a waterbed so no moving it to screw stuff from behind, so all has to be mounted from the front gap. Let’s hear the words of great wisdom. Thanks Michael

Perhaps a series of removable ply-wood access panels resting on simple cleats …

... you would just have to play with the placement of the cleats to be able to remove the panel(s).

Well, after it eats 2-3 pillows, it should be full, right?!? Then you’ve got your problem solved… lol.
On a serious note, I like Ron’s idea. It seems the most simple and easy to remove.

I didn’t know waterbeds were still a thing.

For as many pillows that the wife has on the bed we could stand to lose a few…as far as the waterbed is concerned I am a hot sleeper so the cool water is my fix.

Have your say...
