Bed Construction Details
||All solid hardwoods: cherry, maple or walnut.
||Cherry and Walnut woods are finished with a hand rubbed linseed oil and wax finish. Maple pieces are finished with a tung oil, 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.
||Side rails are connected to the headboard and footboard using a steel quick latch.
|| 17 slats that are each 2.5"wide x 1" thick and set 2.5" apart, and that are held together by canvas strapping. Made of poplar wood.
For all bed sizes Hardwood Slats support the mattress and are additionally supported by a center support beam. The center support beam is hung from the center of the head and footboard for the slats to rest on and has a center support leg to provide additional support. The space below remains open for under bed storage.
||We use mortise and tenon joinery in the headboard and footboard.
