People often ask if the beds I build are difficult to assemble and/or how they go together. I figured this might be helpful.
You’ll start with this. Actually, you’ll have a couple more screws than shown here, but basically you’ve got two bolts, a rachet/socket tool, a drill/driver and some screws.Your first step is to connect one of the side rails into the leg/toe rail assembly, inserting the dominoes into the domino slots.
Now drive two screws through the bracket into the toe rail.
Connect the same side rail to the headrail/headboard/back leg assembly using the dominoes again.Drive one of the bolts through the back leg, into the female threading in the rail. Don’t drive it tight yet- you’ll want to leave some play for getting the last rail inserted. For now just drive it enough that it wont fall apart once you’re not holding it.Now slide the other side rail into the back and front leg at the same time. It’s helpful to have two people to do this (one at each end), but it can be done with one person, as you can see.Now drive two screws in the front bracket and a bolt in the back for this final rail, and go back to snug up the bolt on the first rail. Now the frame is assembled. At this point you will just need to set the middle cross support in place (no tools necessary), adjust the height on the center foot (no tools) and place the slats down, evenly spacing them out. Use a drill and provided screws to secure the slats, and you are done. If your bed has storage there are a couple other steps left, but they are easy.
