Hi, I'm a stay at home mom with two boys.  I enjoy keeping my self busy with different projects, in addition to chasing my boys around.  Anyway, completed my first desk and extremely pleased with it.  I can't wait to start the next project on the list.

Hi DTeague - could you offer some advice on one of your projects

Hi

I don't understand how the carriage bolts attach to the 2x6's in this project:

I get how you put them thru the 4x4's, but what do they connect to on the 2x6's? Normally - there's a nut on the other end. Are you supposed to just screw these into the wood directly? Is this a safe way of fastening a carriage bolt?

Please contact me - jimmy.mooney@gmail.com - or reply here. Thanks!
