Amish Solid Wood Construction 

Mortise and tenon construction is used on the pencil post bed corners for added strength. The bed rails are bolted together with a through bolt and barrel nut. Each pencil post 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. Two slat supports are needed to meet the mattress manufacturers warranty requirements. They simply attach to the bottom of the slats.  Our pencil post beds are expertly built for both beauty and durability.

Handmade from Solid Wood in the USA

All of our Shaker bedroom furniture is made in America according to the traditional designs of Shaker furniture.  It is made with the highest attention to quality in design, workmanship, wood selection and finishing.

Amazing quality. All solid wood, even the frame. So very pleased!
Hello Mimi,
Just a note to let you know the bed arrived. It's terrific; very well made. Many thanks. And we want you to know that Gary did a wonderful job of getting the bed to us. He was right on time, in fact a bit early, and kept us informed along the way. I'm sure it was not an easy trip. He is to be commended. Our compliments to him and his helper Jason.
