Pretty simple and straightforward: They need to slip over the rail of the upper bunk, be strong, and that’s about it. So I added little walnut ends to them so there would be three things: slip, strong, spiffy.
This image shows the rails ready for finish. This is a foreshadowing of the next blog entry which is titled, as you likely guessed,
“Ready for Finish”
I sense your breathless anticipation, so I’ll get right to it.
