No offense intended.

I tried to draw out the entire support structure but the drawing was confusing. The "distilled down" version was much more clear. Besides, the OP mentioned that he was going to have a carpenter do the build. My bad that I didn't see I wasn't replying to him.

I think it is just a slide out that sits on top of another piece of plywood. So the face of the bench moves forward and supports the bed. While the frame of the bench stays put and supports the middle.

Maybe with a small lip that catches to top plywood when extended out to keep the whole bed level?

What is the weight rating on those antigravity modules?
I'd like to lift about 24,700 lbs.

that's what I would have guessed too... maybe he used flat plywood instead of the interlocking rails (but I think the interlocking method would work much better).
