And the furniture is very pleasing aesthetically. Steel furniture can come in so many different innovative designs, whereas traditional wood is necessarily limited to very conservative designs. Compressed plywood furniture looks good but is not long lasting.
You could also do it by drilling and bolting. Use 40 x 40 x 3 angle.
One leg at each corner, two in the middle. The frame has the angle section open at the top so that wooden slats will lie inside the frame and therefore need no form of attachment - they are loose, and stay in place as they are kept in place by sitting inside the angle.
Cut the steel angle sections to the correct length, using a 4. Round off all edges and corners carefully with the angle grinder, using a grinding disc for metal.
If you cut them precisely to length so they are a good fit, they will fit firmly and not move. FTM here - I've been crib shopping and have my heart set on an iron crib. New baby on the way will use the traditional one as its still brand new.
Wire brush the steel sections, using a wire cup brush on the angle grinder. Weld the frame together and weld on the legs. Clean the weld zones using the wire brush.
Paint with 1 coat metal primer, 1 coat black undercoat, 2 coats black gloss topcoat. This completes the metal frame.
Now lay wood slats across the top, sitting inside the angle section. If you cut them precisely to length so they are a good fit, they will fit firmly and not move.
They need no fixings. You will need about 26 slats. This suits an open bed base with easy clean underneath.

Steel bed is good but if you are newly married be careful and keep lubricating the joints or it'll tell everyone what you do at night.
