Fastening catch plates to the posts

The placement of the catch plates on the bedposts determines the height of the mattress; the bottom of the box spring is customarily 8V2 inches above the floor. It is also crucial to locate the plates so the inside faces of the rails hug the edges of the box spring; for a 60-inch-wide box spring/mattress set in a bed of the dimensions provided on page 50, centre the plate on the edge of the post. Mark the edges of the rail on the post and outline the catch plate on the post (right), centering it between rail marks. Chisel the plate mortise as you did in step 2, then hold the hardware in position and outline the hook openings on the stock. Use a chisel and mallet to cut recesses in the post for the hooks, then screw the catch plate to the post.
