I am going to ca next month to build my daughter a king size bed using 2x redwood stock. I read Taunton new book on pocket hole joinery and I like their bed plans. The bed frame is essentially 2×6 joined to 2×6 thin edge to thin edge.
Author recommends dowelling to position boards….strongly recommends either jessum or dowel max jig….coupled with pocket hole joinery.
I do not want to spend $120 for jessum one time project.will the lee valley or woodcraft self centering jig do the job?
Suggestion appreciated. I will use knockdown metal hardware for joining bed rails to headboard and footboard
