Since we’ve started a business, North Country Rustics (find me on Facebook) we’ve been very busy but we’ve also tried to take our projects to a new level. We’ve made several log beds (eventually, we even began making the bed frames from log~even though I wimped out on my son’s bed) but we are currently working on our first log bed for sale.
The queen sized bed is really our best work yet but we’re stumped when it comes to how we should finish it. We realized that the finish on our past beds are not as durable as we’d like. I want to be confident that the owners will not need to “worry” about the maintenance for their bed. The logs are white pine and tenoned together using the Veritas tenoning system. Please ignore the ratcheting straps on the bed…we’re in the gluing stage…
Any finishing advice would be greatly appreciated!
