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.|
Platform style beds use eight 1" thick solid poplar slats secured to the side rails with peg and hole joinery. Each slat measures roughly 71⁄2" 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 21⁄4" apart - on Full and Twin size beds this spacing is 13⁄4".
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 and Queen Size 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.|
