There is no piece of furniture as important as your bedframe. Solid and beautiful, our beds are made to last for generations. We design a new bedframe for each client, beginning with sustainable American hardwood or locally salvaged Beetlekill Pine. Finished with our signature hand-rubbed oil finish, each bed comes to life through a list of standard customizations that lead to personalized perfection. Beds are handmade in our local workshop by Robin and Jeff.


  • Headboard and footboard are mortise-and-tenon joined by hand, with bedposts standard at 2 5/8″ square. Headboards/footboards are a solid inch thick or more, depending on style. Raw boards are hand-selected according to structural quality, dimensional grain pattern, and balance of color. Specimen boards with rare or prized pattern and figure are given priority at the crown of head and foot.

  • Side rails connect with industrial-strength steel fasteners, set into a mortise and fully concealed from all interior and exterior sides of the frame. Assembly and disassembly are quick and simple using a rubber mallet.

  • Each bed includes a support structure of real wood slats or MDF, depending on your mattress type, providing even, long-term support using natural materials. We eliminate the need for a boxspring or other foundation, and all bed designs can be used with or without one.

  • Our hand-rubbed oil finish protects and seals without polyurethane or stain, leaving a baby-soft surface with a satin luster. Upkeep is a breeze (when your bed is solid wood) with natural oil and an abrasive pad.


  • Tailor our Solid Arch, Slat Arch, Mission or Craftsman bed designs to your tastes, or start from scratch with your own ideas. Alternatively, explore our specialty beds, built with masterful techniques and designed with high style, or start from scratch with an original design.

  • Standard customizations include bedpost heights, footboard style, and overall height to the top of your specific mattress. We find cues for these dimensions in your mattress measurement, your bedroom windows and art — we’ve built a handful with clearance to let the dog hide during thunderstorms.

  • Add underbed storage on one or both sides (built like our heirloom-quality dressers with dovetailed drawers on soft-closing glides!), include some turquoise inlay, or opt for blend of two or more wood species.

  • Enjoy local in-home delivery and setup or nationwide shipping
