When our daughters got older, we had to build a king-sized custom bed. Most beds we saw were too "platform" like, which sat too close to the floor. So we decided to make ours about 12.5" high to allow for extra storage beneath. If you don't want the storage, make the legs shorter!

Will probably make some full size screen dividers or lamps next.
Thanks to Jay VanArsdale at DaikuDojo for teaching us.

Rough dimensioning was done with jointers and planers, but...
I'm trying to figure out what kind of joint this is?
Lap joint? Japanese joinery (is there a name for it?)
How would I go about making it?
Many, many thanks.
P.S. I've been googling for a while and just could not get the results, so I'm asking the pros here :-)
