I built this a few years ago for my son. It’s constructed from ash, using mortise and tenons to a join the head and foot boards to the legs. This was also my first attempt at turning some bun feet for this project.
To a join the side boards to the legs I used a mortise and tenon joint along with a bed bolt system that I got from Rockler. The end result was a very sturdy bed.
For the curve on the headboard I used two pieces of ash planed down to 1/2” thickness and drawn down with clamps and screwed into place with the edges rounded to hide where the two boards meet.
All the scroll work on this project was purchased.
