« Part 10: Sanding stack, rail ledgers and rail hardware mortises Part 11 of Bunk Beds: XL Twin over Queen; Cherry and Walnut series Part 12: Some Assembly Required. Whole lot, actually! »

My son-in-law Patrick had some time, I needed the help. He’s a great hand, very adept, nice to have around.

We got everything sanded that even looked like wood.

While he was doing that, I rigged a setup to rout the chamfer on the inside of the legs. I made stops, then clamped two legs together. My system of marking the legs helped guarantee the chamfer would appear on the right corner.

I did it in two passes with the stepper on this plunge router.

Then I did the rest of the leg corners with a chamfer half the size of the big one.

Next, it looks like some assembly is required!
