« Part 7: tenons, arch decoration Part 8 of 4 Poster Cannonball Bed series Part 9: routing for bed rail hangers »

Hauled out the floor mortiser today,

top tenon has been tapered to 3/4”

hand plane to fit

then trace for top mortise, cut 1/16” extra on top and bottom

I made 2 V blocks same width as bottom post to hold mid section centred

fitting good

The 1/16” gap for seasonal movement in headboard

test fit

2 more hrs in the shop this afternoon, I got the mortises cut for the footboard, and the holes drilled for the bed roll.
