Building a bed with no glue or screw; how to make sure it won't crack and be noisy? - 18 replies

Hi all! After 6 years of sleeping on the floor, I’m planning to build a bed platform this winter. I wanted something simple in look and after a lot of time and designs iteration, I proudly showed my sketches to my wife, whom happily trashed everything and found what she wanted after 15 minutes of google search… :D You know the f...
