    Torsion box for bed

    Has anyone built a torsion box to replace the box spring that supports the mattress? I have a reproduction "Charleston Rice Bed" and thinking of doing just that.

    The assembly table in my shop is my favorite place to do just about anything but it has developed an annoying sag.

    Yup, torsion boxes are strong!!

    If you didn't already know, torsion boxes are very strong and in the case of the one I just built, extremely light too!!! I built the 8' long X 3" thick X 14" wide torsion box below for the article I am working on. I made it from very thin, 1/8" Masonite hardboard, some even weaker thin peg...

    Torsion box work bench

    I need to build myself a work bench. As I have ponderd the idea of a bench, the thought occured to me. Why not just build a torsion box and use that. If I added material to the areas where vises would be attached, and filled the cavities with some sand to add weight wouldn't that make a...
