They Still Make Them Like They Used To:

Part of Maple Corner's accomplishment is bringing to light a forgotten level of quality in furniture making, and to do so as a small American workshop, no less. In the first place, there's a particular cleanliness to the Shaker style that makes it extremely adaptable—a simple and strong presence in the home. And the second place, there's a need for more responsible manufacture, the kind most easily supported by small industry that can hold itself to the highest standards of source material and quality production. Maple Corner handles all charges, and with remarkable results.

The Shakermoon Bed is a style update defined by an gentle paired sweeps on the headboard and footboard, keeping the lines of the bed low while adding a touch of dynamic symmetry. Legs are traditional in shape, with equal tapers at the base, while the larger components showcase carefully matched panels of beautiful grain. Wood for the Shakermoon is sourced through sustainable harvesting, while the craftsmanship involved in piecing together each bed is of the highest caliber. The aim is to create a work of true heirloom quality, but to do so in a responsible way

Hardwood:

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

Cherry: Heartwood is used exclusively throughout each piece.

Walnut: Heartwood is once again used exclusively in each piece. Note there is additional cost associated with building any piece of furniture from walnut.

Platform:

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.

Joints:

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.
