Glad my advice was put to good use and you were able to conquer this challenge.

I've attached some photos of the finished bed and you can see how I sewed the zipper onto the top and bottom to make the whole thing adjustable. I really like the design and I'm sure happy with how it all came out. Beats the pants off any chain store mattress or bed in a box you can buy online.

The only thing I did want to change was to see if there was any places that sold very thin latex toppers (say 1/2" or so). When I pick up the end of the mattress its a bit harder than it should be to manipulate because you feel the springs on your hand. If you could lay a very dense sheet (ILD 40-50) of 1/2" dunlop latex across the bottom I think it would be darn near perfect IMHO. If anyone knows where to get that thin of latex, I'd love to know.

Looks good, great job. Can't help you on the 1/2" however. Might have to get polyfoam for that.
