Bed Frame plansFree Bed Frame plans - The whole business of making things with raised panels has given me lots of thought over recent years. But router bits sets for making raised panels are relatively expensive, and very limited in terms of thickness of material they can handle. They also prevent the use of mortise and tenon joints on the frame, because the throat depth on the router bits is too small to accomodate a tenon. So I did an experiment to see how well I could shape the frame more by hand. I just made the panel flat (no need for a bit), and used a quarter round router bit as far as I could into the corner, and then carved all the way into the corner with a chisel. So I could approximate the effect of the raised panel router bits this way.
