Fit the Picket Fence Bed Rails to the Posts
A dolls house scale bed rail with a tenon is inserted into a mortise cut in a bed post.

Insert the tenon of the dolls house bed rail into the mortise you made in the bed post.

Test fit the miniature mortise and tenon joins on your picket fence bed together by inserting the tenon gently into the appropriate cut out mortise on each post. If the tenons and mortises you cut are all very different (only fit one particular section of bed rail) mark which section fits where so you will line up the correct posts on the gate section of your head and footboard. If your joints are very similar sizes you will not have to mark them individually for fit. Do not glue the bed rail to the post yet!
