    Thanks for your advice, appreciate it.

    These are the bed bolts I bought. Bed bolts. But now I'm wondering with the size of the rail (8" x 1 1/4" x 82"), whether I should use 2 bed bolts per connection. Or, would 1 bed bolt be sufficient ?...

    Agree. I'm going with all bed bolts now. and going to mortise/tenon all rails and position them in the center of the 3 3/4" square posts. The headboard bed bolts will pass all the way through the...
  4. Thanks for the reply. Does the tenon dimensions...

    Thanks for the reply. Does the tenon dimensions seem appropriate? No issues drilling a hole through it for the bed bolt?
  5. I think I'm going with the concealed bed bolts...

    I think I'm going with the concealed bed bolts with a mortise & tenon joint. Anyone have any thoughts on: 1) a single tenon ( 5" tall x 3/4" wide x 1" long) with the bolt running through the center...

    I was leaning away from the bed rail fasteners because I've heard over time they loosen up some. I have no experience, myself, with this though. The mortise & tenon and then snugging them together...

    Thanks for all the replies



    Have you ever used or seen concealed bed bolts, Amish bed bolt as an example, where I wouldn't have to drill a hole all the way through the post and having the bolt...
  9. Attaching bed rails to posts with thread inserts

    I'm building a king size bed frame, out of white oak, for the first time and thinking about attaching the rails to the posts using 3/8" thread inserts. The rails are 1 1/4" x 8" and the post are 3...

    Since I'm going to rabbet my plywood to fit into groove, could be any thickness, could I use a straight cut bit to cut groove and then cut out tongue?
  11. I appreciate all the suggestions. Much more work...

    I appreciate all the suggestions. Much more work than I originally thought. I'm thinking I'll do a sample joint with the cope & stick and sand and paint it. That way I could see how visible it is....
  12. Trying to visualize this. So, the ends of the...

    Trying to visualize this. So, the ends of the rails are glued and then butted up to the edge of the stiles, with no tenon/mortise joint. That leaves a dado size void on the top & bottom edge of the...

    Totally aesthetic. I'm not sure what the top edge of the door would like like after painted. But I'm beginning to see the extra work. Could I slip the tenon in to the single groove, same groove the...

    I'll look into the jig idea, thanks. Let me ask another question. If I cut the stile groove up to 1/2" of both ends, and pushed the tenon in that groove, would that make the joint too weak? The door...
  15. Routing and jointing of rails & stiles of cabinet doors

    I just finished building and installing kitchen and bathroom cabinets. I'm looking to build about 60 full overlay Shaker style doors and drawer fronts, all square profile and painted white. The rails...

    Yes, the trial door panels will let me experiment. I just wanted to make sure the gel stain would adhere to the old finish and hopefully not cover the grain completely. As far as the dark stain...
