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.
