Description

PLATFORM BED No.1 IN SOLID ASH by WILBUR DAVIS STUDIOS

This bed is simple, elegant, and strong.  The square rails give the bed a lightweight appearance while maintaining a completely solid stance.  We designed this frame to come apart easily and move without a lot of fuss.   Once assembled though, it becomes clear that this is a piece that is here to stay.

For durability, we utilize mortise and tenon joinery in combination with bed bolt hardware.  The mortise and tenon is one of the oldest and strongest joints in a woodworking. We use this joinery technique throughout this bed, but many of the joints are permanently glued.   The exception to this is the rails.  Instead of gluing these in place, we utilize high-quality bed bolts for the 4 points where rails meet head or footboards.  These bolts lock the mortise and tenon in place with incredible strength, yet allow for easy disassembly when it’s time to move it.  Beds that don’t use bolts can loosen up over time, leading to a permanently wobbly bed.  This system of fastening stays perfectly tight and will serve you well for many years to come.

Our bed is built with robust poplar slats that nest into pocketed solid maple rails. Beds larger than twin are constructed with a solid maple mid beam to prevent sagging. The bed is designed for use without a foundation or box spring.

    Our experience with Kelly and Matthew was excellent. Kelly was very helpful and patient as we went back and forth to make decisions about wood type and headboard height for our Platform Bed No. 1. They made the bed in record time and the results are beautiful.
