Laying out the mortises

The bedposts are joined to the end boards and rails with blind mortise-and-tenons. To ensure that all the mortises line up, mark them on the posts in a single setup. Clamp the posts together with their ends aligned and place the assembly on a work surface. Holding the edge of a carpenter's square against the stock, mark on one post at a time. Mark the mortise length—3 inches—across the pommel; each headboard post has three mortises, including two for the headboard and one for the end rail, while each footboard post has two—one for the footboard and one for the rail. Next, mark the mortise width—3/s inch; center the mortise outline on the pommels. Use the square to align all the mortise length marks (left).
