Subject:
Danish modern bed joinery *PIC*

steve voigt
After a storm punched a hole in the roof and killed our mattress, we upgraded to a queen-size, and now I have an emergency bed-building project. It has been decided that this is the desired design (I quite like it too).

Having never built a bed, I will probably have a number of joinery questions. Here's my first: What about the tenons going into the front legs, pictured below?

Would you make mitred tenons, or perhaps interlocking tenons, or ? Any input is much appreciated!
