MACKINTOSH, ARTS & CRAFTS MAHOGANY TRUNDLE BED
This trundle bed was made for a customer who had specific size limitations.
They put a 30% deposit down on the bed. When we invoiced them for the balance, they did not reply.
We have invoiced them and attempted to contact them periodically for the past 2 years. NO success.
It is our usual custom to offer the piece for sale, to any interested party,
MINUS THE ORIGINAL DEPOSIT when this happens.
This has happened to us about a half-dozen times since the economic disruption of 2007-2008.
Obviously, it involves life shattering events
We make EVERY attempt to reach a compromise with the purchaser, and usually do.
But, some just disappear completely and abandon their deposit.
THE BED IS NORMALLY $4300.
LESS THE 30% DEPOSIT.....$4300. -$1300. = $3000.
WE WILL DISCOUNT IT $300 FURTHER TO COMPENSATE FOR THE NON-STANDARD TOP MATTRESS SIZE.
$4300. - $1600 = $2700.
THIS TRUNDLE BED IS FOR SALE FOR $2700..
PLEASE READ BELOW FOR THE MATTRESS AND TRUNDLE BEDDING SIZE THAT MUST BE USED.
The Headboard is 45" tall x 46" wide. The footboard is 36" tall.
THE TOP BED IS 36" X 76" IT TAKES A 35" X 75", NARROW TWIN MATTRESS.
There are many high-quality "narrow twin" mattresses available.
They are used in invalid and long-term care situations. Research their quality and availability on the internet to satisfy yourself that you can find a suitable mattress. YOU COULD ALSO USE A CUSTOM FUTON ON THE TOP.
THE BOTTOM TRUNDLE HAS TO HAVE BEDDING THAT IS 72" OR SHORTER.
IT WAS DESIGNED FOR A 34" X 72" X 8" THICK FUTON.
The original customer had space restraints, and wanted as small a bed as possible.

The Mackintosh bed design that is a model for this trundle bed has the necessary style elements
to accommodate the bottom bed without it appearing to be an afterthought.
The solid head and foot boards hide the mechanisms necessary to allow
the lower bed to be slid in and out easily.
The ends are each a large frame of thick Mahogany.In the center is a panel of 3/4" Mahogany plywood.
We have to order a special architectural grade of plywood for these beds.
Even the best grades of plywood usually have only one good side. Because this project has both sides visible,
we must special order material that has an " A " grade back as well as front.
We pay attention to EVERY detail.
THIS FURNITURE IS NOT JUST NICE,
IT IS FAR BEYOND YOUR EXPECTATIONS!
We have increased the thickness of the side rails to 1½" in order to further strengthen
the entire framework. The trundle below is as substantial as the bed above.
The side rails are the same width & thickness. They are built into a box with heavy Ash boards at the top and foot. These heavy Ash board are the attachment point for the sliding mechanism.
Their hardness and strength allow the slides to be secured with no fear of weakening.
ALL OF OUR WORK IS COMPLETELY HANDMADE & HAND FINISHED.
HAND RUBBED OVER AND OVER AGAIN
Superb quality fit and finish - GUARANTEED.Finding the sliding mechanism was the key to our proceeding with this project.The best description is that they are huge drawer slides. The purported use for them is on the storage drawers of museums that may contain large collections of rocks, fossils, or other very heavy items that need to be accessed on a continuous basis.
Whatever they were originally for, they allow the trundle to be slid out from the top bed 100% of its width,
so there is no compromise in space available in the trundle.
There is a full set of slats to hold the bedding in the trundle, just as in the bed above,
and both are screwed to the supports for added strength and rigidity.
The slides are massive. Each of them weighs nearly 20 pounds.
But, they are of a quality and precision that is not found in most commercial hardware.
They are effortless and smooth beyond belief in their operation.
Any one of any age or strength can slide the trundle out with little effort.
The bedding requirements for the top bed and trundle are easily handled with available materials. The bottom trundle can only use a futon that is 6 - 8 inches thick.
We recommend that a quality futon be made to fit the box.
Due to the constraints of size, dictated by the top mattress section, which is a NARROW TWIN SIZE,the approximate length, INSIDE THE LOWER TRUNDLE is 72" rather than the traditional 75".
If one chooses to use a futon, the length can be gained by compressing the bedding a bit
This is easy, with a futon, due to its flexible nature.
If one uses a mattress, it will need to be made special the proper length.
