The Yarmouth is a simple platform bed with no headboard or footboard. It’s made to use without a foundation and has solid hardwood slats for supporting heavy mattresses, and metal-on-metal corner connections for added strength and durability. Matching under-bed drawers can be used underneath to add storage to your bedroom. An optional low headboard is also available.
BedWorks of Maine’s furniture is hand-crafted of solid North American ash and maple, superior light-colored hardwoods with a beautiful grain. This fine wood is hand-sanded and finished in five steps, or it can be left unfinished if you prefer. 13 stains and paint colors are available. **For lowest toxicity we recommend adding low-VOC water-based Aqua-Clear coating, alone as a clear finish, or as a topcoat on stain or paint. All colors and finishes are available on ash. Maple is not available in Golden Oak, Clear, Aqua-Clear, or unfinished.
The company has been crafting furniture in the USA for over three decades of renewable, sustainable Eastern domestic hardwoods. Any glue used in production is water-based; their wood finishes contain no urea formaldehyde and have passed ASTM testing for lead*; and their packaging is made from recycled materials whenever possible.

*Prop 65 Warning: In 2016, Bedworks of Maine had their furniture independently tested for compliance with California’s Proposition 65, which requires warning labels on products that may contain any of more than 800 chemicals or ingredients that the CA Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) lists as a carcinogen or reproductive toxin. Of these 800+ substances, they did not meet compliance levels for two. 1) Their barrel nuts tested positive for lead. These nuts have been replaced with a lead-free option, so this is no longer an issue. 2) Phthalates were found in their finishes. This is harder to change in their production process, so all finished furniture shipped to California currently have a Prop 65 warning label. There is no such warning on Bedworks of Maine’s unfinished furniture because it has no finish applied. Most small furniture companies do not have their products tested, so while we are disappointed about the finish issue we applaud the company for going to the expense of testing and being forthright about the results.
