    Thinking to put two of the domino connectors in each corner, have changed the bed slightly now to have legs that support the ends and the ends of the side rails. Just make feet from 40mm stock and domino them in the underside.

Just drawing it out like this to make it easier, going to make templates then MDF blanks of the corner pieces before i do the real thing, just...
