HarvestMoon Dovetail Solid Wood Bed
Uncommon Design: The Asian-Shaker Influence
It's certainly not a historical note—only in today's modern workshop do the traditional woodworking skills of far-east artisans cross the minds of craftsman working with native wood in the northern United States. This is exactly what's happened in the creation of Maple Corner's Harvestmoon Dovetail Bed. The lines are simple, low, and arresting, creating a sleep platform that carries the beauty and craftsmanship of natural hardwood furniture into any ultra-contemporary space. Or, to go the other way with this approach, the Harvestmoon Dovetail can instantly update any colonial home environment without creating a clash. It's a blend of cultures and a blend of styles.
Moreover, the wood for these beds has been carefully selected note only for quality, but for sustainability. So, like the furniture of old, you can expect a Maple Corner bed to last for an exceptionally long time, and you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with supporting a small manufacturer you know is committed to responsible practices.
It's hard to beat the longevity of hardwood and the cleanliness it brings to your home, and with that said the keen design of these pieces, which Maple Corner describes as "honest and delicate," ensures an uncommon level of fashionable integrity—something that will not only always be around, but that you'll also always want to be around.

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.
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.
