We were in need of new twins for a trundle situation, but being frugal meant we had to consider cutting the foam of the king into two twins. The component system made this totally possible. I found that using a utility knife and pulling the foam away from the cut worked best. It is slightly jagged on the cut sides, but with a mattress cover (ikea) and a twin fitted sheet it isn't very noticable. We also move them around quite a bit, and the pieces stay together without needing to be re-situated. You may want to add another fitted sheet on the bottom two layers, which we negelected to do, leaving us with some linty hairballs on the bare sticky foam bottom. I like that we are able to have differing levels of firmness. The only stinky part is the smell (pun!), which I've found is unavoidable with memory foam. I actually felt like it was able to air more than a normal memory foam mattress because of the layers being separated. If you do a similar project, do consider the amount of space required to lay out the mattress prior to cutting, which you will want to do long enough for complete expansion. Totally worth the effort to safe the $.
