« Part 14: Ladders in a few easy, ahem, steps. Part 15 of Bunk Beds: XL Twin over Queen; Cherry and Walnut series Part 16: Ladders step by step »

Where the cap stops for the ladder access to the top bunk, the cap looked like it was on 2/3 of a post. Well, it was.

So we fashioned this little corbel that solved that “unfinished” appearance problem. This was the sidegrain face of the legs (as opposed to the flat grain) and Patrick even lined up the gluelines. Looks very cool, but you have to look real hard to see it!

It’s obvious now, but throughout we used cherry plugs on the walnut and walnut plugs on the cherry and a rubber plug in the bathtub.

Still coming along very nicely.
Like the switch on the wood and plugs,
but especially like the rubber tub plugs.
Very good work.
