Thanks for the reassurance Mark. Ill move along with out any second thoughts. As far as using dowels instead of screws – I’ve had plenty of beds over my lifetime that have used screws to hold the slats in place. They work great initially, but take the bed down and set It up a few times and the screws tend to lose their holding power as the holes strip out, the support strips split from over tightening etc, etc. Pick your gremlin it will happen just by looking at it.
