How to Log Bedroom Furniture
Log Bedroom Furniture – While assembly instructions vary between log wood furniture manufacturers, there are many similarities as well. Here’s an overview that should give you a better idea of what’s involved: The harshest casing items, such as dressers, crates, night beds and cranes require very little assembly at all. As a general rule, we release the door handles and drawers to avoid damage during delivery, as they tend to be prominent and risky.
There are holes in the front of the drawer or door, and screws are included, so for these items it’s just a matter of placing the wooden furniture handle over the hole, inserting the screw through the door or drawer into the hole, and tightening it all. Most Amish producers like to install headrests on the wooden bed itself. Sometimes we ask them to leave the four corners of the foot for easy delivery since the beds can be rather large and make them smaller helping to save on shipping costs.
All Amish furniture makers I know use Lem Gorilla, which is very strong glue. Once they put the head of the bed, you might as well forget trying to separate it. I know people who try to separate them and break a piece of bed.
