This is a Sponge Bed and my design is inspired by a Cornell University study a number of years ago. The study found that wood and any kind of wood ,clean and with out varnish or sealers can destroy bacteria. It was found if memory is correct that 98.5% of the bacteria on a piece of wood is gone after a 12 or 24 hour period( I forget which).
I immediately thought of those smelly sponges and went to work on the above wood support. It works! My sponges never smell any more and last a long time. Feel free to make your own and enjoy the comfort of the Sponge Bed! And all you beautiful cutting board angels; it's Ok you can come back now, we didn't know any better then. Please forgive us.
