I’m looking for some recommended books and other resources for timber framing. Basically the deal is that my wife wants a new king sized bed, and really likes a few that she’s seen like the example here:
I know that I can just do normal drawbored mortise & tenon joints with bed bolts, albeit on a larger scale, however I figured this might be a good project to learn some of the timber framing joints and operations.
I’ve got a basic design down already, but wanted to see if there were any changes to be made before I buy wood and start.
For reference, the posts are going to be 6×6’s, transverse rails are 4×6, longitudinal bed rails are 2×6, caps will be 2×8’s, and slats are 2×4’s.
Thanks in advance.
