Clark Bed

Pete Michelinie
of Woodstock

The headboard is joined to the side braces with a massive dovetail joint.  No secrets or tricks with this, just pure precision work. For ease of transportation the entire bed comes apart; the frame, slats, feet and headboard assembly.  A combination of bolts and connectors are used to secure the bed when it’s in place, making a sturdy, and rigid piece.  The canted feet further brace the bed and add to it’s modern design.

Made of Red Oak, the Clark Bed was a hybrid of a few ideas, erring towards a mid century modern design.  It is finished with linseed oil, varnish, and paste wax.

Photos of the bed in the making can be found here.
