Finding a Rice Bed Post

I am looking for a complete single rice bed post. My daughter is set on using set, but it is lacking one post. I have no idea where it went. I am located in mid Missouri, but travel thru southeast Kansas and northeast Oklahoma.

You could contact the manufacturer. If it is an antique, you could have a craftsman make a replacement one.

I do not believe you will be able to find a single rice bed post but you might try placing a 'wanted ad' on local sites like Craigslist, OfferUp, LetGo, Nextdoor.com and see if anyone has even a full bed for sale.

I did find a site that teaches classes on making/carving these but I could not find a posting later than 2018 so they may not be doing this anymore. They did also make these poster beds so maybe they could help you.
I would say try to contact them to see if they can help you find someone to make a duplicate for you.

When we lived in a townhouse and broke a wooden turned cut railing and baluster when trying to move a dresser down the steps. UGH.

Then I had a baby doll cradle where the foot-board had broken during a move.

In both cases (I was living in two different places) I used the yellow pages (pre-internet) and found local wood workers who were able to do custom work. It was surprisingly inexpensive for what was done.

I know this kind of bed post is a little more complex than what I needed, but I would think a good wood worker could fix you up easily. They can see the existing posts and get the best idea for stain and shape.

I think it is totally doable.

Post back what you learn.

If you can not find what you are looking for online or through the manufacture of the bed I would contact a wood crafter and have him craft one for you. This shouldn't be too difficult and shouldn't cost you too much to have this one done.
