I decided to go with the traditional siderails -> mortised into
bedposts solution for my bed.
Do I need bedbolts to tighten the joints, or is glueing enough? Can I
go with bedbolts only (i.e. no glueing - bed can be knocked down) or
do they go hand in hand (glue+bolts)?
If you're going to do more than sleep in it, pin the tenons to keep their
shoulders in register regardless of the changes in the glue.
The bed bolts keep things in register and can be adjusted to accommodate
wood movement and human activity.
