« Part 3: dealing with transition flat to round. Part 4 of 4 Poster Cannonball Bed series Part 5: cleaning up square to round transition »

Got the holes drilled. With the new lathe chuck, using it to hold & drive the turnings. I make sure that the turning will rotate against the bit, then start lathe on lowest setting. I advance the drill bit till the drill chuck starts to enter the hole. The turned Pins are 2& 1/4” long. New post design compared to the Ash bed I built a yr ago. Mattress height is 4&1/2” lower, or 13”& 1/2” off floor.

D.I.L. wanted bed lower to floor, hope this is enough.
