Rapid Bed Prototyping

After creating the design in OpenSCAD, it's "Rapid Bed Prototyping" time.
I decided to create the measurements for the holes by hand on paper, so these are included lateron as photo. Thanks to my friend Werner who gave me his expert advice on woodworking, cut piece after piece of wood precisely on the table saw and let me use his workshop and tools for drilling and fitting!

after sawing

construction including hole positions and dieameters


Table drill: hacked for performance

10mm dia holes for the M10 bolts, 13mm dia holes for the nuts

The lower piece of wood is the guide for positioning the holes


Proof-of-concept of the 3D-connection

Several hours later: success!

Coming up next: sanding, glazing (tomorrow), installing metal parts (probably tuesday).
