Cutting post on post bed - how to cut straight
I'm a total diy'er but my woodworking skills/experience are quite limited.
We have a 4 post bed that my wife would like me to cut down the posts because they interfere with her seeing the TV that's in the room.
I need help with how to achieve a straight cut while cutting these post 'in place'.
The posts are 4 sided and gradually taper to the top. Once cut we will just cap them with some type of post cap. See attached picture of bed, planned cuts in red...
