I should have mentioned - a friend built a small step stool out of 1X6's to use in case the TT was sitting higher than normal, but he built it so that it could slide under the table and support it if someone was sleeping on it. Worked great.
Our table is built lie a hollow core interion door with laminate on the top and sides and Luan on the bottom, use if when we need it as a bed, use it all the time when smallish DGKs are with us. Never thought about it, never had a problem. It has been by adults up to 250lbs(DD won't tell #s).I started to build another top because DW wants one with the plastic insert to hold a small vase but somehow never finished it. Think I'll look at Walt's whene we go out there next week or two.

One thing I didn't think about till my salesman brought it up during a walk through was the size of the wood piece that the table sits on in the bed position. He said keep the sleepers small. That piece is very small and I saw his point. I am thinking about using a piece of decorative plywood to add to under that strip where it would support a little more. I didn't even think about the table. Mine is the standalone table, but I could see even using a piece of plywood for the sleeping surface instead of the table. I love the idea of the combo step stool/table support!
Has anyone used a shorter pedestal for the table when it is in the bed position? I am making my table and have the break-down RV pedestal with the two round bases. The pedestal length is 27" but I wondered if it's possible to fashion a shorter pedestal to fit the bases. Thanks.
