I have a bed that I have been building - it has 4x4's for the legs, and I want to attach the frame of the bed (the part of the bed that runs from front legs to back legs, structural support) to the front and back legs.
I dont really want to just screw it to the 4x4's, but would prefer to have a carriage bolt that provide more modularity to the bed. Are there any kinds of deep nuts I could insert into the legs that I can screw a carriage bolt into? Basically so I can easily screw it in and unscrew it for dis-assembly. I have seen shelves and dressers we have bought that have these kinds of recessed nuts that you can screw a bolt into when assembling.
Just wondering if anything exists for home use?
Here is an image of what I am doing:
The brown pieces are what I want to attach to the posts/legs. I will then have supports along the 88 1/2 piece of wood that will span the width with 2x4's to provide a base for the box spring. Since it is a load bearing piece, I would like for it to be strong.
