Now that I've looked at it again.... I'm gonna
rename the end and side rails and trade their
positions ( it's been a while since I've looked
closely at the drawing )
The side rail goes into the wide rabbet in the leg
The head and foot rail tennon goes though the side
rail and the leg, then is pegged in place.
The peg holds both the side and foot/head in place
and the wide rabbet adds extra support to the longer
side rails .
I'm actually cheating and using modern bed rail
clips that I've picked up at Rockler's now instead
of tennons and pegs. Once the bed is together they
are compleatly hidden and there is not tennon for
my wife to bang her knees on sticking out of the bed
search Rockler.com for part number 28589 or 28597
if this link does not work...
