« Part 2: Curve patterns Part 3 of Crib series Part 4: Templates and Spindles cut »

I was able to get my spindle stock joined and planed last night. Over the weekend I layed out my mortise locations and I think that I might change the side top rails. Originally I was going to use an ‘S’ curve on top like G&G, but that conflicted with the simple arches everywhere else. Now I’m thinking that a simple inverted arch on top and an arch on the bottom might look better, the joinery doesn’t change, thankfully.

Fortunately I was able to get all my spindle stock from ‘salvaged’ material from the local flooring mill. Still can’t get over what they throw away.

Oh and I was able to test out my Steel City 40200H planer, very nice…
