Temp Feet, Drilled Holes for Rails and Ankles

I tried making some temporary feet to start getting R2 on all threes, but I think I made them too small, and I'll have to try again. "Measure zero times, cut many."

I finally got around to drilling the frame to support the center leg rails. The rails will sit on a couple of pieces of 1/2" plywood at the front and back of the frame. So I drilled those pieces of plywood and the frame bottom. Bolts connect the rails to the frame, t-nuts are inserted on the underside of the frame.

Finally, I drilled the holes in the ankles for the bolts that will secure the feet. The holes are 1/2", I'll insert a 1/2"->3/8" reducer for the bolt to pass through.
