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.
