Sliding Breadboard Attempt #2
« on: September 11, 2017, 04:49 PM »
This is just too Hard!!!

I tried to post this set of pictures early with poor results.

I wanted to attach a breadboard end to the side of a 33" high headboard and allow for seasonal wood movement.

Here's what I came up with.

I made a wide tenon out of maple and, using a simple jig, I cut a 10mm slot.


I cut an 8mm mortise 40mm deep and about 8mm wider than the tenon in the end of the headboard. I cut an intersecting 10mm slot next.

The wide tenon slides into the 8mm mortise and a 10mm tenon locks it into place. The 10mm tenon will be cut flush later.

The other end of the wide tenon is attached to the breadboard end.

The breadboard end is free to slide with wood movement.
