Turned balls, commonly refered to as cannonballs, first started to appear on American low-post beds in the early 1800s. As time went on, Cannonball bedposts were made taller. Antique Cannonball Beds traditionally had a footboard or turned footrail (blanket rail). Modern Americans are somewhat larger than our ancestors. We rarely receive requests to add footboards thus they are a custom upgrade.
"Thank you so much. We love our (cannonball) bed." - Meg and Bob Reitano
Cannonball bed posts are turned for us in the USA. The rest of the parts are made-and-finished-to-order in our New Waverly, Texas furniture studio.
Our original cannonball bed, the one featured in Elle Decor magazine, has 4" thick posts and is available in painted or cherry wood. Recently, we discovered a new woodturner that offers 3 different styles with 3.25" thick posts in maple and cherry. We'd love to make beds from these posts so we are offering a hefty discount to the first person to purchase each design. Some might call this product testing, but we like the term guinea pigs. Guinea pigs are cute and lovable!! :)
