My Granddaughter wanted me to build her a pencil post bed
No problem, I knew that I would have to build a few jigs
including some for painting it. She wanted it to be painted Black
The first jig was for the tapered legs and I made a few planks
for the posts out of pine 2X4s to practice on before I made
the finial posts out of Birch
I then made five jigs for painting the posts,one for the top
so I could rotate them and an eight sided set for the bottom
“Does anyone want to buy a slightly used tapering jig”
