    Default Bed Post Turnings

    Here are some photos of some bed posts for a Japanese inspired bed which I turned last week. They are 87" long and started out 4 1/2" square.

    Looks like it'll be a nice bed! How did you cut the mortises?

    They are sapele. The posts are glued of three pieces and made I the mortises during the glue up by spacing out the center pieces. It will have a Waterfall Bubinga headboard.

    That is a great project. I'm looking forward to seeing the Waterfall Bubinga headboard.
