Time Tested Construction Methods Only

Mortise and tenon construction is used on our Early American style beds for added strength. The rails are bolted together with a through bolt and barrel nut. Each bed has five slats of which two have center supports on the queen and king beds. On all King and queen beds there will be 5 slats / 2 with props. 2 slat supports are needed to meet the mattress manufacturers warranty requirements. They simply attach to the bottom of the slats.

The bed frame and night chests surpassed our expectations. In a day of shabby workmanship and scams, it is a joy to proudly display our gorgeous bedroom suite that my wife and I gave to each other for our 55th wedding anniversary. All I can say is WOW! The color, design, sturdiness, and white glove delivery were exemplary. We couldn’t be happier with our selection. Keep up the great work.
