Default New bedframe

Hi Gang,

I thought you may be interested to see some of the pictures we took last week of my newest bed frame design.

Made of salvaged douglas fir, salvaged palm tree and pine
Finished with hand rubbed natural oil and wax
Queen size

There is also a picture of a bench, made of FSC certified, formaldehyde free Bamboo.

Has anything changed from the old bed pictures, looks the same. Still looks great though.

I like the bamboo top on the bench too. It must have been expensive.

Eco,

Do you have a salvage wood supplier there or do you just pick it up wherever you can find it?

Yes, I have a supplier who has tonnes of windfall kicking around.
