My first rustic project. It all started with one tree falling across the drive one morning. As I walked up to this fallen tree with all intent of adding it to my fire wood pile something clicked in my head. It was at that point I decided I always wanted a log bed. Little did I know ware this was about to take me. Now two years have passed and I have created my own rustic furniture and accessories company.
This bed is made from white ash logs and a hard maple natural edge slab for the headboard. The elk scene in the headboard was burned in with a little color added to bring it all to life (compliments of my dear friend and artiest Pat Sherman. The foot board is complimented with a set of shed elk antlers. Two inch tenons hold this sturdy bed together and to finish it off it is top coated with 4 coats of gloss polyurethane.
