Here is a project worthy of any woodworker's talents. The canopy bed was carefully researched to embody all the features desired in a Colonial piece. Even the blanket rail found on many Colonial beds has been included. The posts are designed to be turned in sections in order to fit in the average home lathe. It may be made as either a twin or full size bed and the plan even includes full size templates for the arched canopy frame. Omit the canopy if you prefer and you have a beautiful 71-1/2" high four-poster bed. Height overall with canopy frame is 80-1/2".
All joinery is shown in actual size, curved workpieces are all in full size and you can measure and trace straight from the drawing. A bill of materials doubles as an exact cutting list, there is a detailed exploded diagram, and all hardware requirements are provided. The exploded diagram is so detailed that project specific assembly instructions are not provided. A special booklet entitled Guide to Building Wood Furniture is included with each Furniture Designs, Inc. plan and includes many tips explaining the "component theory" of woodworking.
