« Part 8: Mortises! Part 9 of 4 Poster Cannonball Bed series Part 10: gluing up head and footboards, stain »

I made up a jig for the colt router to accurately cut width and depth for the hangers.
I use another trim router to cut relief slots for the hooks

By adding a spacer block to the jig, cut the mortise on the ends of the bed rails.

Added a 1.72×2 inch strip to support the box spring. On the second glue up found out that the 83&1/4” length of the other rail I measured for the support was 1/4” too long. I thought I had trimmed the rails to length weeks ago, rails should be 82”. Glad the rails where uneven lengths, wouldn’t have caught this error.
