Viking bed construction plans **similar to the one my fiance made. Made our old rv mattress somehow way better than it was! I'm guessing the slats allow for a bit of flex which contours the body nicely.
Vikings were quite vain about their appearance. In fact, combs, tweezers, razors and ear spoons are among some of the most frequent artifacts from Viking Age excavations. These same excavations have also shown that the Vikings made soap.
