This is a rustic log bed I’ve been working on. I have been wanting to get into making rustic furniture for some time now. I am planning on building end tables and two dressers to go with the bed. I will post as soon as they are finished.

Looks like a good start, what did you use for your method of joinery?

4” screws. I plan on getting a tenon maker, but wanted to see how I liked working with logs first. So far, everything I made has held up fine. I live in “Amish” country (in Ohio) and a buddy of mine makes these beds but only with straight logs and he has been using screws for 3yrs now. I defiantly think the tenon maker will be in my near future.

forget the tenon maker, how about a hand saw. I cut the tenons about 2×4 shape and then drill out a chisel out the mortise. Looks good, forget the screws and start cutting tenons. Much stronger and more fun.

I have a log bed posed on this site with hand cut tenons, i did it with a $10 hand saw, and $15 chisels from walmart. and a big kitchen knife to peel the logs.

happy woodworking.
