Solid oak, cherry, maple, walnut, hickory, and quartersawn oak beds provide durability and a look of elegance. Many styles have the option of purchasing the headboard alone. When you purchase a head and footboard together, the bed comes with solid hardwood sides and slat boards. The slatboards attach to the sideboards, to prevent slats from falling! Amish built with pride, this will be a bed you will be proud to pass down to future generations. Mattress and boxspring are not included in your quote price.
