Back by popular demand, the Cannonball bed post is available in two sizes. This Headboard post is 46 1/2" tall, while the Cannonball Footboard post (Part #2000) is 39''. Most people will use this post for the head of the bed, with the smaller version at the foot. However, you can also choose one of the sizes and make all four corners the same height.

This is truly an American design. In the late 1600s the cannonball held specific significance as it was the most revered form of weaponry known to then-modern mankind. Therefore, the cannonball design soon adorned the furniture of the day as well as fence posts and hitching posts that dotted the city-scapes. In keeping with this American tradition, the designers at Osborne Wood Products established a traditional design that features the cannonball at the apex of the leg. It rests atop a spool perch and attaches to the eased shoulder of the square. This same eased shoulder design is replicated at the bottom for elegant symmentry. The 4-inch square allows for maximum screw length to appropriately affix your desired bed hardware.
