Back by popular demand, the Cannonball bed post is available in two sizes. This footboard post is 39" tall, while the Cannonball Headboard Bedpost
(Part #2001) is 46 1/2". Most people will use this post for the foot of the bed, with the taller version at the head. 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 symmetry. The 4-inch square allows for maximum screw length to appropriately affix your desired bed hardware.
