Master Bedroom King Bed

Very, very nice work. Chet, your last two pics with your description above them “ First dry fit of the footboard”; are both pics of the footboard, just in different stages of dry fit or is the next to the last pic, the headboard?

@Chet I have a MBR set coming up for our home and will watch with interest.  Really liked the end tables and look forward to the rest.  I feel you on the end grain of raised panels and the effort to make them look and feel the way I want.  The ends of panels on mass produced stuff makes me cringe ;-)  Your thread is timely for me and I appreciate the extra effort of posting the ride-a-long.

I sure like the contrasting flat panels to the raised panels. 

Just wondering, what made this decision? I would have gone with one or the other, but not a combination.  What made you consider both? Creative reasoning/thinking is my guess!

I'm not sure if i said this before but i love those nightstands! If i said it before it's worth saying again.

I really like the mixed raised and flat panel design as well. So the flat panels are going to be up like the dry assembly picture? That's opposite what I was expecting. I'm really interested to see this finished.

What did you use to cut the raised panel cove?

That's looking great, Chet! Did you make that jig special for this job, or is it something you already had, and perhaps modified?

It was made just for this job.  I hang on to jigs like this, then get tired of looking at them and toss them out, then instantly have a use for one of them.  So I start the circle of life all over again.

What I liked most about them, is if you cut your mortise a 32nd deeper for both male and female parts, you get a really tight joint that's solid, and it's still able to come apart if you have to break it down to move it.

I am a little below the surface, I'm not sure it is as much as a 1/32" though.
