Making a custom made sleigh bed.
by Harry Howard on 2010/08/16 3:03 PM

What I want to talk about is sleigh beds. We get a lot of requests for sleigh beds and sometimes people don't understand why they cost so much more than a plain bed. Here's why - because we make one off pieces they vary in size and shape so each time we make one we have to make a complete new moulding for the plywood to bend on.
Here are some pictures.

Because each bed is different we can rarely use the same mould twice.
