Our Hand Carved Log Bear Beds are made in traditional spindle design - each made from lodge pole pine from the mountains of Colorado. There are 2 hand carved bears in each headboard post and 1 hand carved bear in each footboard post. Each bear is painted to accentuate the bed and the fine details of the carving (note the bears backside in the headboard). The bed is assembled using mortise and tenon joinery that provides a solid and secure feeling when you climb in. The lodge pole pine is sealed with a satin lacquer finish to give years of protection. Bed dimensions are measured outside to outside, and may vary due to log size. The bed posts are made with 5" - 6" logs.
