Episode Summary

Pencil-Post Bed
Norm adapts the design of an antique pencil-post bed to accommodate a full-size mattress and box spring. His bed is built with Poplar and he utilizes mortise and tenon joints to fit the pieces together. He produces eight-sided asymmetrically tapered posts by tapering the two inner sides on the top and beveling all four corners. The bed dimensions are 42" diameter top x 24" high and 52" high when raised in the chair position.moreless
