So in part 4 of the twin bed project; I discovered what one of the dumbest things you can do wrong when cutting a groove into the end of a board on a table saw?  Well as I found out, not using a feather board to keep constant pressure on the board.  The foot-board is assembled by cutting a top and bottom board with a groove.  The bead board is then inserted in between those two boards.

Here is an example of a what happens when you don’t use a feather board and things go a little crazy.

Here is an example of how it should work.

Good result on a groove
