      MDF, in fact.
      I’ve just read about the difference and what I’ve taken away from it is that these beds are, as you say, too dear.

        Are you sure it’s MDF? That last one definitely looks plywoody…and as far as I know, you can’t (easily) curve MDF (See bow in fig3). Either way, no thanks NOC

        You’re right, just saw it on website…It’s €18(retail) for a sheet of that stuff (2.4m x 1.2m)

          Hmm. Extremely cheeky pricing in that case: though I have no idea how long they’d take to make.

    Lovely kid but that drawing is like something off Tattoo Fixers

      Heh. True. I love that show. I particularly enjoyed the guy who got a bawsack tattooed over his knee.

        I like the guys who buy home tattoo kits and run amok.

    A grand?! Sure you’d whip one of them up over a weekend with a jigsaw and some nails, no bother.

        I shudder when I think of the greatest activity in the world, jumping on the bed, ending in tears on a shaft of MDF :(

            I’d rather you didn’t. Much more fun.

            TAKE IT OUT! UNZIP THE FECK OUT OF IT.

            Nah. My brand of hilarity can’t be reined in, man, and they know it.
