This king size cedar frame bed is made from eastern white cedar which has amazing character, charm and warmth. It is a heavy duty bed using 4 inch cedar poles and horizontal supports to accommodate the sheer size of a king size bed. Additionally I use mortise and tenon joints throughout the bed which gives it the strength required and and offers up just an exceptional, rustic look that will stand the test of time.
Its side rails were designed to be slightly higher than the standard 25" bed height to accommodate the larger box springs and pillow-top mattresses commonly used today. Plus it makes it easier to get out of and into for seniors and people with joint issues.
The headboard insert picture used is a scenic lake landscape at sunset. However, the picture included can be changed to any graphic/photo you desire. If you have a special landscape photo or a personal photo that you want placed on the insert (in a vector format), then it can be printed on the headboard insert. This is part of the base cost.
Optionally, another photo can be placed on the reverse side of the insert and you can flip the insert to provide variety; i.e. seasonal landscapes, animal selections, family scenes.. This additional backdrop is available for $150.00.
The base cost does not provide any finish, however, I normally use a semi-gloss spar urethane to protect the wood and allow the natural beauty of the wood to show thru.
The three coats of spar urethane can be purchased for an additional $250.00
The bedding, mattress and box spring are NOT included.
Bed internal dimensions: 77 1/2" by 81 1/2"
Bed external dimensions: 85 1/2" by 89 1/2"
Cost of the base bed without the spar urethane is $2,150.00
Cost of the bed finished with the spar urethane is $2,400.00
Cost of the bed with second backdrop and finished with the spar urethane is $2,550.00.
