Fastening hook plates to the rails

If you are using bayonet brackets to attach the side rails to the posts, start by fixing a hook plate to the ends of the rails. Clamp a rail to a work surface, center a plate on the end, and outline it with a pencil. Then chisel a mortise within the outline to a depth equal to the plate thickness. Once the plate is flush with the end of the rail, hold it in position and tap it with a mallet to mark the base of the hooks on the wood. Hold the chisel perpendicular to the end grain of the rail and cut recesses for the hooks (above). Then screw the plate to the rail, making sure that the hooks will be pointing down.
