I'm trying to recreate this bed.
Right now I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to attach the back leg which is at an angle. It needs to be disassemblable. The manufacturers assembly instructions have a wooden cleat bolted to the back board.
The back board is .75in wide. I could recreate this using threaded inserts and 1in bolts. Could I also just screw this together with regular wood screws? The back board will be mortise and tennoned into the back leg.
I'm a little worried about the angled butt joint between the side rail and the back leg. I would think there would need to be dowels or something there.
I had thought of two different ways to do this.
I'm not sure what screws I could use that would go through the .125" steel and into the .75 rails. I'm also worried about getting the dowels lined up in the angled butt joint.
I think this would use the most traditional bed making methods, I'm just worried about the angle. I'm not sure how to get the holes for the dowels and bed bolt to all be parallel and level so that they support the bed.
Thanks for thinking about this with me.
