Measure the length and width of the mattress. Use these measurements when purchasing a large plywood board. Depending on the mattress size, you may have to purchase two plywood boards and place them beside each other on the box spring.
Place the plywood on the box spring. If it requires cutting, set the plywood on the floor, and place the mattress on top of it. Use the marker to trace the mattress curves onto the board.
