The Queen Loft Bed is made from locally harvested Flooded Gum off a property in Newrybar, northern NSW. The timber was dried for four years and machined to size by the maker. Traditional mortise and tenon joins were used on the bed ends whilst the side frames are joined with bed clamps to allow the bed to come apart for removal. The curves on the bed frame were each cut by hand and finished with a spokeshave. The legs are also designed with a curve at the base of each leg. A hand-made ladder was crafted for the bed also from Flooded Gum.
Flooded Gum varies in colour from pinks to browns and the oil finish used on the bed highlights the figure of the grain.
