Platform Bed

The platform bed on page 22 of Woodsmith No. 160 requires minimal hardware. All it takes is one package of bed rail fasteners (#28597) from either Rockler or the Woodsmith Store.

You’ll also need to get a flush trim plunge router bit to cut the mortises for the fasteners. The one I used came from Amana Tool (#45460-S) and was 1/2" wide with a cutting depth of 1/4". You’ll often find them listed as dado cleanout bits by the manufacturer.
