This entire collection is habit forming. Once you own the quality pieces made by Whittier, you will be spoiled. Every attention to detail with this and every piece from this company. With safety and quality in mind each piece is crafted and packaged for shipments around the country that arrive in 100% perfect condition every time. Their finished products are topped with conversion varnish, the same we use in our shop as well as the fine Amish builders. Few companies pay such attention to every detail. In addition, their Customer Service department is and always has been as good as can be with hands on owners and representatives that truly care about their product and the environment.
Lets talk about this piece.
This bed combines six storage drawers in the base and bookcase shelves in the headboard.
The drawers are a great place to store quilts and linens. The bookcase shelves are great for alarms, phones, books, pictures or decorative items. The storage headboard features a large hinged door that opens to reveal a large concealed storage area below the cubbies for extra large items you want tucked away.
The drawers have English dovetailed drawer construction, mortise and tenon joinery and fitted backs for stability and strength. The drawers also have full extension metal ball bearing glides that make storing blankets, pillow or lines easy.
Whittier is very conscious about it’s use of wood and the environment. That’s why Whittier uses American red alder wood for it’s furniture. Alder regenerates naturally and grows quickly and prolifically.
Alder is a beautiful hardwood that is similar to cherry wood. It grows in the Pacific Northwest along a 125 mile-wide strip along the West Coast that stretches from Alaska to Northern California. The largest concentration of Alder stands just north of Portland, Oregon.
Red alder is almost white when freshly cut, but quickly changes on exposure to air to light brown with a yellow or reddish tinge. Alder machines well and is excellent for turning and polishing.
