How do I Make Bed Slats?

Answer

You can make bed slats from lumber that is about 3/4 to 1 inch thick and about 4 inches wide. The length depends on how wide across your bed is--whether it is a twin, full or queen bed. Cut the length to fit firmly inside the bed rails. 3 to 4 slats should hold your mattress and box springs.
