Pencil Post Bed
This bed is a grand edition to any Bedroom. Precisely hand-planed eight sided tapering posts and iron bolted joints make for a hearty feel while the clean slender lines are very elegant.
The pictured bed (queen size) has finials at the top of the bed posts. I turn these on the lathe and are mounted with a 1/4" steel post that inserts into the top of the pencil post. Cross pieces connecting the top of the posts is another option. These can be seen on my Painted Pencil Post Bed.
Below is a shot showing the exposed bed bolt design that I generally use. Clients have complimented me on how easy it is to assemble the bed with this system and that the result is a very solid bed. Also, the bolts can be easily tightened if needed in dryer months of the year. This design was inspired by the use of an exposed bolt on trestle tables that were used by the Shakers. I did design a bolt system that is hidden but assembly is a bit more complicated and I do need to charge an extra $400.
Each bed is custom fit to your mattress thickness in order to finish off with the mattress height where you would like it to be. Feel free to suggest different wood or other custom ideas.
King and Queen sizes available.
