thanks @rwe2156 , could you please expand on the joinery you used? I’m guessing t/g joinery means tenon and groove, but then I’m unclear where/how you used the pins, and when you say pins do you mean dowels? I was thinking of going with something like this and wondered if alone with no bed bolts or other fastener (no glue) it’d stay in place when the wood moves:

If I just used t/g for the siderail, would I then put through a dowel to keep things in place and make the dowel hole oversized? is that how it works to fasten it but let it move?
