A typical sprung-base support bedstead with detachable bedhead and foot is shown in 462:1. Figure 462:2 shows a corner of the framework mitred and tenoned, and with glued-in plywood panel. This panel can be covered with material (grass matting, etc.) in which case the covering is glued on with a suitable adhesive (wallpaper paste, shoemakers’ paste) and glued and pinned
