Captains Beds

Captains Beds

Even in tough economic times such as this the, one room that always needs attention is your kids’ room. The combination of value, quality, versatility, simple design elements that blend in any room and the unique finish options of our captains beds creates flow and excitement. The space-saving captains bed is an ideal solution for those with limited space and lack of storage. The captains bed includes two doors at the foot of the bed for extra storage. Each under bed storage unit has four drawers and a center drawer compartment. The captains bed includes one under bed storage case. A second storage case is optional. If the captains bed is to be placed against the wall then the optional second under bed storage case is not needed and the empty space can easily be accessed through the two doors at the foot of the bed. The hardboard and the footboard feature bead-board moldings.

The captains bed is the perfect combination of storage and sleep and here are some details of these beds:

  • The captains beds have simple, youthful design elements.
  • Birch hardwood construction.
  • Captains beds has support brackets on ends of rails so that barrel bolts rest on the metal and not wood, thus reducing stress on the wood.
  • Metal hardware is used to attach side rails to bed ends of the captains beds.
  • Captains beds have a wooden slat roll system with canvas stretchers and two screws per each slat. (Slat roll eliminates the need for a box spring).
  • The bed rails of the captains beds are constructed from veneered plywood thus preventing splitting and warping.
  • The front and back of each drawer box is English dovetailed and center supported on bottom.
  • The front panel of the drawer box is crewed, not glued or stapled to the drawer box.
  • Metal drawer guides with automatic drawer stops are side mounted.

Here are some quality features in greater detail:

Support Brackets

The captains bed features a metal bracket supports on ends so the barrel bolts rest on metal and not wood thus reliving some of the pressure on the wood.

Barrel Bolts

Shown here are the actual barrel bolts about to be inserted into the bracket supports.

Slat Roll

The captains bed has a slat roll with canvas stretchers and 2 screws per slat. By having a slat roll the box spring is not needed. The slat roll acts as the actual box spring.

English Dovetailed

The drawer fronts and backs of the captans beds are English dovetailed. The English dovetailed joint is the strongest joint that can survive the constant pull of opening and closing the drawer repeatedly for years to come.

Center Supported

The drawers are center supported as well as corner blocked for added reinforcement.

Drawer Construction

5 part drawer box construction with the front panel screwed, not staples or glued, to the drawer box.

Metal Guides

Side-mounted, metal drawer guides with automatic drawer stops.
