In which everything is going along swimmingly, until it turns out I failed to buy the right size lag bolts.
This slat is being attached with lag bolts instead of wood screws so that if we need to move the bed, I can take it off the ladder. The upper part of it will have a notch cut into to it to slide the rail into, and the rail itself will have some little wing-type what-nots on the butt end of it so it can’t slide back out sideways.
So I’ve got it all bored, slide the bolts in, they fit just right, yes the angles are all wonky but it makes sense in person, I promise.
And then I go to put on the lower washers and nuts.
