« Part 1: Bracket... Part 2 of Foot rail for the bar...... series Part 3: Installation. »

I set up a 40 mm Forstner bit in the drill press and using a sacrificial top and fence drilled the holes through which the 40 mm Dowel will pass..

Then a quick trip around the front edges with a 1/2 roundover bit in the router…

Next time I post these brackets will be after they are installed on the bar….
