Popular for centuries, the pencil-post bed can be adapted from contemporary to traditional designs. This version features posts with simple octagonal feet and the classic tapered octagon on top. Hand-carved lamb's tongues, a tester frame, and figured wood help lend a period look.
Instructions guide you through each step, from milling and tapering the posts to cutting the tapered chamfers, carving the lamb's tongues, and constructing the frame. This 24" x 36" blue print sized plan includes patterns, full-size and scale drawings, component templates, and detailed cutlists, along with a reprint of the original project article from Fine Woodworking magazine.
This is a woodworking plan and it does not include lumber, hardware, or any decorative accessories shown in picture.
