Bed Construction Details
|Wood:||All solid hardwoods: cherry, maple or walnut.|
|Finish:||Cherry and Walnut beds are finished with hand rubbed raw linseed oil. Maple beds are finished with a Poly gel, as the maple grain is more dense and does not absorb linseed oil as well as the other woods. Little to no VOCs upon delivery. See special care instructions.|
The Cherry Moon Dovetail Bed uses 20 hardwood slats, each about 23⁄8" wide and 3⁄4" thick. Spaced about 15⁄8" apart, these slats are secured into the side rails using sliding dovetail joinery.
Center Bed Slat Support for King Beds: A hardwood beam that drops into pre-attached hardware in the center of the two cross frames; 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..|
|Shipping:||Beds ship disassembled. Free set-up and installation by white glove delivery crew.|
