Pencil-Post Bedcomments (1) February 16th, 2012 in blogs
Oh, even a dedicated woodworker might make do for awhile without another end table or bookcase or wall cabinet. But at the end of the day, we all need a place to lay our weary selves down. Tradition - among other things - demands it. So here, with Lonnie Bird's help, is how to build a comfortable resting place in traditional style.
Bird's pencil-post bed, which he wrote about in issue #184, features octagonal posts that require no turning, a headboard of tiger maple and a tester frame up top.
The download includes a dimensioned, exploded drawing of the project along with Bird's article with photos of the important techniques and detail drawings of the joinery and necessary jigs.
