Bed Construction Details

Wood: All solid hardwoods: cherry, maple or walnut.
Finish: Cherry and Walnut beds are finished with hand rubbed linseed oil only.  Maple beds are finished with Poly gel only as the maple grain is more dense and it does not absorb linseed oil as well as the other woods. Little to no VOCs upon delivery. See special care instructions.
Mattress Support:

The Cherry Moon Dovetail Bed uses 20 hardwood slats, each about 238" wide and spaced about 158" apart. These slats slide into the side rails using dovetail joinery.

All other Platform style beds use one bundle of 8 hardwood slats to support the mattress. Each slat measures 734" wide with holes drilled at either end of the slat. The slats slip over pegs distributed evenly along the side rail, creating a solid interlocked platform. On King and Queen size beds, slats are spaced 214" apart - on Full and Twin size beds this spacing is 134".

Mattress and Box Spring style beds use a set of 4 hardwood slats to support the box spring and mattress combination.

Center Bed Slat Support for King Beds: A hardwood beam that drops into pre-attached hardware in the center of the head and footboards; located just below the slats to provide additional support. The space below the slats remains open for under bed storage.

Side Rails: Side rails are connected to the headboard and footboard using a steel quick latch.
Joinery: We use mortise and tenon joinery in the headboard and footboard.
Shipping: Beds ship disassembled. Free set-up and installation by white glove delivery crew.
