Driftwood Bed, handmade in Tofino BC by Robinson Cooke (student of famed carver Henry Nola).

Western Red Cedar + Yew Wood. Fits Queen size mattress. (80"X60"). The frame has been in use for years, and is in good shape.

This bed uses heavy duty knock down bed hardware for ease of assembly/disassembly and durable invisible joinery. The headboard was sawed off the side of a log. During the searching of nature for a headboard piece we found a log that had the right movement and dimensions to it plus the added feature of roots on one end. We cut the essence of the log off and hauled it by boat to a shop in Tofino where it underwent several weight loss programs (carving off material) during its 6 month drying time. All the rails are flattened on the inside to facilitate precision joinery. The head board is through-bolted on with wooden plugs in the counter sunk holes. The foot board (a Yew wood root) is mortised into the foot posts and lag bolted for extra security.

The finish is Pure Tung Oil and Shellac. This is as much a work of art as it is a functional bed.

PICKUP IN EAST SOOKE.
