Excellent input from everyone. I thought about trying the through mortise & tenon. I’ve seen some done this way. I liked the idea of the sliding dovetail because it would allow me to make a long run with short boards. I suppose I could do the same with M&T by offsetting the joints on each side of the post so that the tenons come through side by side? I guess there is a good reason I haven’t seen any beds made using the sliding dovetail…

Might just do the deck brackets too. Would probably be easiest. Aesthetics are important to me even in the garden but could probably make it look nice.

Thanks for all the tips and information!
