Hey guys,

I have a question about putting the headboard/footboard together for this bunk bed. There’s two 1×5 cross sections than are joined with 1×4 uprights. They are joined with mortise and tenon joints. The plans then say to put a ‘Confirmat Screw’ into each of the joints.

What I want to know is how much does putting that screw in the joint actually help? It seems the four boards that make up the assembly would be plenty strong as is. I would rather NOT put the screw in for aesthetic reasons and don’t want to hassle with trying to cover it up. Also, what the heck is a ‘Confirmat’ screw?
