About Our Construction:

 

Our beds feature the exact mortise and tenon joinery at all rail and headboard join locations used during the colonial era. We then use custom-cast bed bolts that are tightened into nuts sunk into the rail under solid wood bungs, to provide a bed of enduring strength.

 

The bed may also be disassembled and reassembled easily due to the simplicity of this construction. The mattress and boxspring sit on angle irons attached to the rails of the bed. You may order different length angle irons to adjust the height of your mattress and boxspring. This may be important if you are going to use an overstuffed mattress set and wish to see the maximum amount of the headboard. In addition to the irons, all queen and king beds receive a support that runs underneath the bed from head-rail to foot-rail and sits on a support rack.
