    Here are some more pics, progress is slow, but that's what happens when this is a hobby.

    This is a pic of the post mortised out.


    Closer pic of the post mortises


    Mortise in the end of one of the front stretchers between post.


    Clamping setup for end grain mortise in a long piece. Used some of those "on/off" magnets and was very impressed by all the jigs those could be used in.

    Aaron, your last pic shows those new on/off magnets with a toggle clamp. Are the magnets strong enough to give decent clamping with the toggle?

    BTW, what are you building?
    It looks good.

    I think this is the way I will end up with the stile grain orientation.

    Now all I have to to is tape off the glued places and decide on a stain and I can glue up this part, make the top caps for the footboard and move on to the headboard.

    Footboard Done

    This is the footboard all stained and glued. Had to stain and glue it up so I could get it out of the way. It starts taking up a lot of space in the basement, but now I can finish the footboard (most pieces cut, need to cut a couple more stain and glue) and the side rails (haven't started).
