    cleaned up the posts, and trimmed them to length, and ripped the side rails to width, and trimmed to length. also did a quick setup to get an idea of the size.

    finally got all of the boards planed down to the same thickness. then i decided to do layouts of the head and foot boards. i may do the half lap, and mortise and tenon work now that the temps are dropping (and i got a bite to eat, and a nap).
