It's already been done - have a look here and gawp at its shininess:

Wow, that's a lovely thing indeed Martin!

If I may go off-topic for a moment.

I searched high and low for the right bed but to no avail. After sleeping for some time on a mattress on the floor, Mrs. D. and I decided to take matters into our own hands so I ordered a bunch of planed lumber from the local building suppliers and built one for us myself.

Unfortunately it's impossible to get a decent photo as it's more than half the size of the room its in but this should give an idea:

It's also constructed in such a manner that it can be disassembled into enough parts to relocate should the need arise.

The messy room is due in no small part to the fact we're having to use other parts of the house as temporary storage while I'm working on the studio upstairs (also why there is scaffolding visible outside the bedroom window) :-)

Very impressed Eddy, it has a bit of a ships cabin crossed with a medieval boudoir about it!
Our bed was made from Key Systems tubing, with a custom built chrome mattress base, and a chrome and black blind hanging down one side, we completely mirrored the wall it was on, and had bright red satin bed linen.
I used to lay in bed listening to our hi-fi, a Transcriptors Reference turntable, Tannoy Cheviots, and a massive silver Onkyo twin transformer amp, that snapshot sticks in my mind as the pinnacle of how we were in the 80’s, my happiest time, in many ways.
BTW, I paid £100 for the turntable :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: and £300 for the speakers, I picked up the amp at a boot sale for .......£18! equally crazy.

Eddy, that's incredible! I'm in awe of anyone who can build *anything* - I'm a disaster area with a toolbox!

Storage over the bed - great idea. Who uses the bed for trampoline moves anymore anyway!

Knowing what a lovely guy you are, Eddy, I am only mildly concerned about the purpose of the hooks in the ceiling :shocked:

Your guess is as good as mine - they were there when I bought the house over 12 years ago and I can't remove them without damaging the plasterboard in the ceiling so I just left them alone!

I suddenly thought, how on earth did we get to the bedroom starting from modular?

I was about to say it was Eddy’s fault, which is my default answer for most things, but actually, it was yours, Tony....
Yes there is, a guy called Ron Arad, he designed the Rover Chair, I commissioned him to build us a platform bed, in the 80’s, it was truly beyond, just beyond, he had a shop in Neal Street in London, that was beyond too.

The fact that we can wander from racks to bedrooms is one of the fun aspects of this Forum

Order gentlemen please, this is a public forum.
Now, as I was saying, can anyone recommend me a decent sine wave oscillator under £200 please?
