I mentioned in my last post that my method for spacing the parts of the laminated bedposts was a cut-off from the side rails. I neglected to show what that looked like, so here it is:
This block is exactly the same width as the side rails, although I have no idea what that width is. It’s somewhere in the neighborhood of 5 1/2″ but that’s really beside the point. With this block I have the actual dimension without measuring each gap and I also have a built in square to check that each of the laminations is aligned correctly. This block took no additional time to make and saves me time on each glue-up.
That’s a highly refined bit of engineering right there.
