From colonial homes to modern flats, the beauty of natural hardwood and simplicity of Shaker lines fits into historical and contemporary tastes. Maple Corner are experts at crafting true heirloom quality pieces of style and design, and the tall lines of the 4-Post bed demonstrate just how delicate that design can be even while upholding the highest standards of construction and practicality.
Strong enough to carry a mattress withou14t a box spring, and without any additional support posts underneath, the 4-Post bed uses thin rails carefully selected from the best heartwood either in Maple, Cherry, or Walnut. The wood itself is sourced from sustainable harvests, and all production methods remain faithful to time-honored hand craftsmanship. A beautiful expression of simple taste, the 4-Post bed will always captivate by how it transforms your living space at home. This one is a rare find in terms of quality an design, sure to please for generations to come.

Custom sizes and finishing details are also available. Please call for information.
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.
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.
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.
