Tapered Post Bed

Tapered Post Bed


Our Tapered Post Bed is finished with several coats of varnish and hand-rubbed to a satin patina.

The four sided tapered posts are approximately 48"H at the headboard and 30"H at the foot and are secured to the rails with 6" heavy duty steel bed bolts.

Built to last with authentic mortise & tenon joinery  

Heavy duty steel bed irons are mortised into the rails to securely hold the mattress & box frame. 

The height of the  2" x 4" bed rail is determined by the overall thickness of your 18" to 24" mattress & box frame.

A center support beam is included for Queen and King beds.  Solid brass bolt covers and a bronze bed wrench are included.
