Pedestal blanks

I cut down some MDF on my ludicrously-sized TS sled.

Made a half-template of the pedestal profile by marking out some key points and squeezing a thin strip between some blocks clamped at those marks. On the right is a trial with a scrap of plywood (the scrap came out of the headboard template, btw).

Another exciting picture of glue drying - this time a stack of MDF. This stack is half of the glue-up for one pedestal - I'm gluing up to end up with a 7 1/2" square by 24" long blank.

Not the greatest visualization, but the blank is giving the height while that plywood scrap is giving an idea of the profile. If it's too "bowling pin-ish," now's the time to say so.
