Searching for hardware. Crescent-shaped nut.

Used to join sections of a bed, as a draw-bolt. Photos at this link... http://picasaweb.google.com/jcooper11/Hardware
Have not been able to find, locally or online.
Thanks very much for any information.

That's a new one for me. Looks like could be fabricated fairly easily from a piece of flat iron, though.

Looks like the connectors for the joints in laminate countertops.

Ah...a one-tailed one, but would likely work, yes.

In the photo, it looks like a forged part. Short of finding a blacksmith, your best bet might be (1) find matching-diameter rod stock or pipe, drilling/tapping/hacksawing, or (2) using a regular nut and a really thick square chunk of steel as a washer.
Alternative 2 will crush some of the wood fiber,but you could combine the two, first lining the hole with a tube, then piercing the tube and fitting a loose nut inside the tube.
Bed bolts are available, of course, but that's most useful for a new design, won't necessarily fit your existing frame. See, for instance, <http://www.leevalley.com/hardware/page.aspx? c=2&p=40445&cat=3,43715,43730&ap=1>

in half and to the proper length, and brazing a nut over a drilled hole?
