Hired Man's bed

This simple low post bed was likely found in every farmhouse in the country at one time or another. Although called a hired man's bed this style was also used for a child's bed and in the birthing room. A simple bed to construct, it required no lathe, only saws and planes. Even the wood bed bolt covers could be made on the farm. Shown in maple, twin size with worn blue paint. The rope trim is added to give it the appearance of a rope bed.

Available in any size in maple with stained or painted finish and in tiger maple, cherry or mahogany in a natural or stained finish.

Each bed is based on an antique bed design and individually built to your specifications in our shop with your choice of headboard, rails, mattress support and finials where appropriate. See Hired Man's Bed in room setting
