This may sound basic, but I am new to this. If I wanted a 6×6 chunk of oak – what would you do? Put another way – I want a 6in by 6in post for a bed made out of oak.
This is a project I am envisioning to do in the fall – not right now (I want to hone in some skill before tackling a bed frame). So how do furniture makers make those giant posts of wood?
Do they have a cheap 4×4 post with oak glued around the four sides and perfectly aligned to achieve such stature? or do they actually have a giant plank of oak that they work with?
