Handcrafted Solid-Wood Bed with Storage Drawers. Multiple Sizes and Woods. Made to order.

This bed is made to order, and can be made in a choice of woods and finishes. The standard finish is an oiled finish (Danish oil) which gives a natural satin sheen and brings the wood to life. Alternatively a coat of shellac and wax polish can be added for a shinier finish, but not to the level of french polish.

Underneath the bed (small double, double, king and super king) are 4 storage drawers, two at the end of the bed and two in the sides. The drawers are fully enclosed so won’t get dusty.

The bed can be supplied as a traditionally jointed bed (no assembly required) but given it’s size it is supplied by default as a knock-down construction (a bit like flat-pack, only no MDF or chipboard).

Start a conversation if you’re interested and want to know more, and I can provide personalised renderings and make size adjustments to suit your particular choices and circumstances.

The bed is also available without a foot board.

Also available is a range of matching bedroom furniture, including bedside tables/nightstands, tall-boy drawers, dressing table, chests of drawers, free-standing wardrobes and sliding door built-in wardrobes. Designs will be uploaded here for each as the renderings are completed.

Note: Mattress is not included, but the bed is sized according to standard mattress sizes. If you have a special requirement for an extra long mattress or an unusual size please start a conversation, I can make the bed to suit.

I’m on Etsy now

I’ve added my first product listing to Etsy.com and opened an Etsy shop. You can view the online store by going to¬†https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/GrantCrawley or by clicking on the Shop entry on the menu.

The first item to be listed on the shop is my versatile Qube Chair.

I designed and made a prototype of this chair for my daughter when she about 18 months old. It’s turned out to be really practical, for very young toddlers it’s great at the low chair height because it offers lots of back and side support in that orientation. As she’s grown up the higher seat position has become more useful, so she can use it to sit at a desk comfortably. Turn it the other way and it’s perfect for a play table, we use it to make Lego models on while sat on the floor, and she uses it for colouring. The chair is quite lightweight and easy to carry for toddlers too, so it does tend to get carted around the house quite a bit.

The chair is 14″ x 14″ x 14″ (35.5cm x 35.5cm x 35.5cm) made from solid pine and finished with Danish oil as standard, or optionally it can be supplied painted with a water-based (child safe) paint which is then coated with a hard polyurethane satin finish.

Low seat height is 5 1/2″ (14cm) from the floor.
High seat height is 8 5/8″ (22cm) from the floor.
Table height is 13 1/8″ (33.5cm) from the floor.
