HOW TO'S
HOW TO ATTACH THE HEADBOARD TO THE FOOTBOARD
The most popular method we recommend is to use a metal frame with the proper "L" brackets for attaching head and footboards

1. Assembling mortise and tenon joints is "just like Tinker Toys"™ {image}
2. Sand all logs prior to glue up. It is much faster and easier
3. If your log binds up, twist or spin the log to find the natural unstressed centered position
4. Maker sure your drill holes and tenon joints are in a straight line

5. GLUE OR SCREWS

Indoor Project: Use Pro Bond, Tight Bond or Gorilla Wood Glue (No screws are needed) {image}

Outdoor Project: Use waterproof wood glue or construction adhesive and use a deck/lag screw diagonally through the joint

6. Dry fit the project prior to glue up to ensure it is square, plumb and correct
7. Headboard/footboard glue up:

  • Use a ratchet strap to go all the way around the frame and cinch tight
  • Lay flat on the floor to dry and stay square

8. When assembling railing, bed rails, spindles or other repetitive pieces, alternate flipping the "butt and tip ends" of the logs so you do not create a "parallelogram"
