    This bed, as well as the whole process of shipping and putting it together, are so ingeniously designed its makers should get a Nobel Peace Prize. Here's why:
    First, Glen (lead maker) invites you to choose from his wood pile for the level of color or striation you want on the headboard. (We did, emphasizing grain match, and the result is resplendent.)
    Second, he ships the bed in two wooden boxes, which turns the bigger side panels on each box into part of the bed (they become the platform under the mattress).
    The result: customized beauty with virtually no waste. What's not to love about that?

    We love this frame! Glen sent me pictures of the wood and let me choose which one to use for the headboard. Glen is very responsive to questions and very helpful! The bed frame is easy to put together and pretty intuitive. The only thing that we could have used instructions on was that some of the boards that are used to make the shopping crate were also intended to be used as support beams for the mattress. Such an ingenious idea! They fit perfectly!

    It is the most beautiful bed I’ve seen. everyone that comes home complements it. You can really tell that it’s detailed and very well made. It will last you for years plus you are suppose tiny small sustainable businesses. The seller was exceptionally nice and super responsive.

    Really beautiful bed. Glen was so nice to work with- we picked up the bed from his woodshop in Picton and he helped us make some last minute changes. His woodshop is also located in an old ww2 bunker which was pretty cool too!

    Assembly was easy although we had a little bit of trouble getting the plywood base to sit flat - but we sorted it out quickly enough. If I had to order again I might consider getting slats instead though. But overall very happy with the new bed. Thanks again Glen!

    Amazing quality! I ordered this for my husband who is from Toronto. He hasn’t been able to travel home for over a year because of the pandemic. Glen was super responsive and helpful, even shipped it to NYC for me! My husband was touched and absolutely loves it.

    Summary: We receive a beautiful, solid bed but had to endure unnecessary customer service problems.

    PROS: We are very happy with our king wormy maple bed frame and headboard. The craftsmanship is very good, and the bed looks beautiful and should last for many years. Also, the seller was very quick about communication/messaging, and he seemed friendly.

    CONS: The seller/maker made some discouraging mistakes like using the first headboard we picked for a different order and shipping the bed without any assembly instructions. These were aggravating but survivable, and we’re happy with the end result.

    We recommend this bed and hope others have a smoother process overall : )

    This is an amazing bed, made out of beautiful maple boards from Ontario. We purchased the attached headboard option, and are very pleased with the purchase.

    Glen was great to work with, he sent pictures of boards and we were able to select the ones we wanted to put the bed together. The end product is simply gorgeous.

    The packaging is extremely well thought out, with most of the material becoming incorporated into the bed itself. Compared to the cardboard and waste you see with most furniture delivery, there was barely anything to dispose of.

    The price of this bed is amazing when you compare it to the cost of mass-produced stained pine/particle board beds from big furniture stores. The quality is miles ahead of those products, and the price is very similar.

    If you're looking for a great quality maple bed, get this!
