    /\ good stuff Tony !

    it appears you have the tool for a 1/2 drill that tapers the log ends on that bed ?
    I looked into that years ago, but never followed thru.

    A tenon cutter? No I wish. I looked into em too, too much $$ for me. I did it the hard way. I use a hole saw, a skill saw, and very sharp chisel. I use the same method on locust fences. The wood for the bed is sourwood so its not too hard to work with. The hard part was figuring out all the jigs to make straight and square cuts, holes and tenons so everything fit nice and tight

    Here some pics of them close. After looking I didn't use the skill saw on these for the taper, I do that on locust since its so hard. Good sharp chisel cut these like butter.

    I learned a lot building this thing, I can say that, but I have done a lot of work with logs and laurel over the years so that helps. I love a challenge and figuring out how to do something, in short spurts anyway, I get frustrated when I have to do the same thing day after day no matter what it is

    They got that much lake affect snow where we were hunting. We kept an eye on the weather and when the warning came out, we got out of town. They got close to 15 inches last night. Glad we came home early.

    There was at least 8 to 10 inches of snow there before the big storm hit. Made for tracking deer much easier. Granted mine dropped in his tracks...lol
