Measure and Mark
Measure the width of your existing bed frame. Lay the 4x8 plywood on a sturdy surface. With the four-foot side as your height, mark the width to match your bed frame.
Cut the Plywood
Using a circular saw, cut the plywood to your dimensions. To make sure your lines are perfectly straight, use a chalk line to mark your measured width.
Lay Out Batting
Lay four layers of batting over the plywood, allowing several extra inches of batting on all sides of the plywood.
