Walnut Headboard-Chest

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.
