Pencil Post Bed

This bed is made entirely of locally sourced air dried Curly maple and cherry. It is a queen size bed, and the posts stand seven feet tall as pictured, without a canopy or finials. The headboard shape is my own design, and the mattress is supported entirely by elm slats. The elm is used because it is very strong and flexible, making for a Very comfortable bed. The entire bed knocks down, and is easily moved into any bed room. The cherry posts are a full 3" across where the rails are attatched, and they taper to ~3/4" at the top, and 1 1/4" at the base. The bed is very rigid, as well as being stunningly beautiful. There are several options available for this bed. A canopy can be ordered, which adds about $400 to the cost, and there are many styles of finial that I can turn to go with the tester. The rails can be made in curly maple for an additional $150, and I can even custom design a headboard for you!
