Canterbury Panel Solid Wood Bed
Natural Beauty — Elegant Lines:
The Shaker style receives embellishment in the form of tapered legs, paneled ends, and fully finished rails capping both the headboard and footboard. Maple Corner is wonderfully adept at creating extremely solid furniture of uncommonly clean design, and this particular effort is no exception. Noteworthy perks include fully finished paneling on all bed ends, an intriguing matching effect that allows grain patterns to flow from one panel to the next, and a formidable hardwood platform that supports a mattress without the need for a box spring while simultaneously keeping the entirety of the area beneath the bed clear of extra supports.
Maple Corner aims to revitalize a familiar, but all too often forgotten practice of building beautiful furniture of truly heirloom quality. Traditional techniques blend with a forward-thinking design that meets the standard of everyday use and clean living, as well as a commitment to sustainable hardwood harvesting techniques. This combination of remarkable design and responsible construction makes each Maple Corner piece and exceptional value.

Maple: The sapwood from hard northern maple trees is preferred for its figured detail and rich, golden color.

Walnut: Heartwood is once again used exclusively in each piece. Note there is additional cost associated with building any piece of furniture from walnut.
These beds are designed to support a mattress without a box spring, doing so by means of ten (10) hardwood slats that lock into the side rails through hardwood dowels. King sizes use a hardwood backbone for added rigidity. In either case, the entirety of the bed remains open underneath, promoting a light aesthetic uncommon to solid hardwood furniture.
An important feature to note, the headboard and footboard are connected to the legs with mortise and tenon joints. Similar to the deadbolt in your front door, a solid wood connection is formed between components by securing the tenon between each piece, locking into the mortise. This joint is vastly superior to metal plates and screws as it prevents fracturing under sheer stress, and is a major contributing factor to why some pieces of furniture last while others do not.
Side rails are connected to the headboard and footboard by a steel quick latch assisted by a steel plate countersunk within the wood of the legs.
Guarantee: Every piece of Maple Corner Woodworks furniture is guaranteed for as long as you own it. These pieces are built to last for generations, and Maple Corner are willing to stand behind this claim.
Care & Maintenance:
Maple Corner does not recommend the use of commercial polishes or waxes. Use a clean cotton cloth to wipe off dust from natural wood. For maintenance, apply linseed oil (or a high quality furniture oil that contains no petroleum dryers or thinners) approximately once every six to twelve months. Regular oiling deepens the glow of the wood and restores the finish from abrasions.
