HarvestMoon Panel Solid Wood Bed
Elegant, Responsible Natural Wood Beds:
Formal headboard and footboard construction is defined by double panels on all bed ends, inside and out, and careful grain matching that allows the wood's natural patterns to flow from panel to panel. The effect gives a window-like appearance to these otherwise solid elements, emphasizing the artistic play at work in the design of each individual piece.
Along the base, a gentle arch carries over from the Harvestmoon theme, giving the bed the elegance of a transom with how it supports itself. A set of deft, reverse tapered legs secures the corners, adding another more modern touch, while the headboard and footboard are topped by stately rails with cove finishing underneath. In sum, this is an impressive bed that leans a little to the traditional side, and a little to the modern side as well, suggesting it's well suited to be the centerpiece of a contemporary master bedroom.

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.
