What's the correct name for something which looks like a bedspring, but
there's no springs in it?
The top surface is just a couple of layers of corrugated cardboard over
crosswise wood slats spaced about 18" apart. The whole thing is covered
with fabric just like a bedspring.
Never encountered one of these before, but just had to replace a busted
slat in one for a friend. Almost couldn't believe how crummy the wood
used in it was. I've seen a lot better wood on pallets.
You should replace the slats with wood from a pallet! That stuff's almost
indestructable (sweet-gum?) and is the same wood used for shoring trenches.
You can't saw it, you can't drive a nail in it, it's too tough for termites.
Heck, I don't think you can even BURN it.
