How “large” are the persons who will occupy said bed? Person weight + person weight + calculation for “velocity” said screw will see / number of screws + air speed velocity of an unladen swallow.

As usual in a lot of LJ posts, there is not enough information.

It would help to know how old is the couple, what is their physical condition, what is the status of their relationship? What’s that got to do with ww’ing?

Simple: screwing requirements depends on the overall weight and anticipated dynamic stresses.

You’re not build a deck, you know.

Simple: screwing requirements depends on the overall weight and anticipated dynamic stresses.

Screwing requirements also depend on physical attraction, and more often than not how much alcohol is involved… This plays a huge role in the screwing requirements for the bed frame as well.

Honestly, I would use 3” drywall screws. Be best if you used the Deckmate screws with star drive, but drywall screws would work fine.

I recommend two single beds, then, just in case there’s and “accident”.

If you need to join two pieces of 3/4 inch wood use two inch screws just to be on the safe side.

Before anyone else says it I’m going to say: it depends what you are going to use it for.
For example you should use long nails( 6 to 10 inches long) instead of screws if you are building a nail bed such as this:
