The headboard and foot board of this solid oak bed can be customized to reflect just about anything you want. Our process for creating these images on the wood, actually recessed in the wood somewhat, is not patented, but it sure is hard to recreate without the experiences our artisans have. Think of the large flat surfaces of the wood as a blank canvas that you can use to create your own functional work of art. Just tell us what you want, and we can help fine tune your idea into something that will make you smile every time to retire for the evening or wake up first thing in the morning. The oak timber is taken from mature, large diameter oak trees, and the live edge of the tree is preserved, giving this piece of furniture its own personality.
