    4 poster bed Project

    I have a good start to this bed, gluing up the blanks from my stash of 5/4, 8/4 Ash on the weekend. Tonight I got started on the big bottom section, one done so far.

    Drilled holes on the lathe as deep as I could get the forstner bit in. I make the pin slightly undersize. Next I have to mount the chuck and part the waste on the tops. Test fit of one post.
