I normally just cut 4/4 stock on a 45 degree and glue up for posts 3” and larger square. I usually insert Poplar squares inside the “tube that I have formed, at the attachment points for bed posts. This way I have 4 faces that have like grain orientation and I do not have to use thick stock. Never found the need for locking miters. The glue joint is strong as needed IMO. Looks great too, especially when I build qtr sawn White Oak posts. Make them any size required for the look I am after.
