Joinery in corners

Vrede - Honeylocust boards connect to one another via four maple legs

Corners are delightful and challenging places in terms of joinery. In this particular case you see the bed rails of Vrede coming together in the leg using mortise and tenon joints. The rail at the upper right sticks through the leg, whereas the other rail protrudes through both the leg and the earlier-mentioned rail, keeping it in place, and is subsequently hold in place itself with two wedges.
