Back in 2017 I posted here asking about getting the components for making a mattress and got a lot of help
www.themattressunderground.com/mattress-forum/index/21111-getting-components-to-construct-a-mattress
Finished it in 2018 www.middleendian.com/emperor

And here's my review after sleeping in it for 3½ years.

I hope this is helpful for anyone who's looking to make a DIY mattress

This is impressive. I did a similar build with an intellibed topper, an inch of latex underneath except I used coils underneath the latex. I find buckling column gel very comfortable in all sleep positions and it sleeps cool. Its right up there with talalay latex and zoned nano coils imo.

Mr. Yabo:

You mention that one of the most comfortable mattress configurations for you personally included zoned microcoils. Can you share the complete configuration of your mattress with microcoils? In a prior post, you mentioned that Hickory Springs manufactures microcoils. I checked their website and they have several zoned microcoils models. Have you used Hickory Springs microcoils in your mattress, and if that is the case, what model? Thanks very much for your insights.
