    SWMBO has accidentaly broken the support for the bed. She was making the bed up ( dragging it out ) when the support snagged on the rug and broke. I have been very calm as it is only a bit of wood. Unfortunately it is proving difficult to find a piece. It is plywood with a Beech effect finish. About 10 mm by 50 or 60 mm ( should have measured it ) by about 350mm. I can fit another piece of wood but it might look odd. It is the support that sits between the two cupboard doors when it is used aas a sofa, if that helps. Any pointers as to where to source on wood (would ) be appreciated.Thanks:thumb:

    If it broke so easily it may be worth looking into making a stronger support..

    either by reinforcing the new piece, making it thicker or replacing with an aluminium leg.. but without a picture it's hard to visualise exactly..

    Would it not be possible to repair and brace the broken support?
