I've come up with this platform bed design, it's meant to interlock, and need no tools for assembly. All the beams are 2X6, the platform would be 3/4 plywood, the headboard would be made out 2x6 as well, and the legs would be 6x6. Would this work to create a bed that wouldn't squeak or break if someone were to jump on it? And how would I go about actually creating the cuts needed to make this, I know nothing about woodworking.

Below is an animation of my design.

So basically a design like this is not possible? What if I were to put padding between the connections in the wood, this would account for shrinking and would muffle the squeaks.

And I looked up what gusseting and racking are. Where would this be needed? On the head board?
