Floating tenons

Using floating tenons the same size as the bed hardware allows the router "window" template to be used again. This time the mortises are 1" deep, and there will be mortises in both the legs ...


...and the rails. Note there are some scraps hot-glued to the back of the window template to align the window properly over the end-grain of the rails.


A scrap is cut to width, planed down, and the edges are rounded over. Once sliced up...


they're the loose tenons that will connect the rails to the legs.

Pretty cool. I never have tried floating tenons. Next project I do, I may have some questions for you.
