The walnut headboard-chest will have a “free-edge” on the top. The lid will be “floating” within the top of the chest. So the top edges need to be balanced out and given a certain quality of surface to fit this application.
Below, I am cutting along the top edges with a medium sized gouge.
Below, a detail of the edge. More adjustments will be needed as the bed progresses.
