The posts on this bed are the toughest part; after that, says Philip C. Lowe, the rest is simple. Lowe makes full-scale drawings for his projects, and he shares tips on doing so on this job. He explains how to make the blanks for the bedposts, how to turn and reed the posts, and how to put it all together. He also offers side information on indexing wheels for the lathe.
