So I’m in the process of building a bed for my son. He wanted a raised panel bed. Gave me a pic and so I’m off to the races…
My problem is, I put the cart before the horse. I cut the tenons on the stiles then didn’t pay attention when I cut the grooves on the rails. Now the stiles are kind of loose. Meaning it’s not a snug fit.
I realized my error before I gut the groove in the legs, so I’m good there. Question is, I’m going to glue the stiles to the rails and the panels will float. Do you think it will be ok, or should I cut more stiles and make them fit snug? I work with rough lumber, so if I need to make more, I’m going to have to work the roughness out :)
As always, the advice is much appreciated.
