Topic tags/keywords: futon

The wife purchased a new futon mattress and now it seem that the old frame just won’t do. The one we will replace had a metal mechanism and was bought 9 years ago. The new ones in the store seem to be all wood with a routed groove in the ends for a pin to ride in. Surelt there must be a set of plans that would help with a layout such as this. Has anyone built one?

I built one based on a plan I got at Rockler a couple of years ago.
