The Columbia Platform Bed
offers handcrafted quality and beauty in American Red Oak and Eastern
Clean and classic lines, strong joints and handmade
craftsmanship mark the Neahkahnie line of platform beds. The Columbia
Platform Bed may be used as a platform for a mattress or futon only or
with a mattress and box spring (see Box Spring option below). The
Columbia Platform Bed is available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, and
King sizes. The Columbia Platform Bed was created to capture the essence of the
heartland of America. The doweled headboard is an age old design that
has always been a favorite among our customers. The
Columbia Platform Bed comes standard with a 28" headboard (see The
Brighton Platform Bed for a taller version of this headboard/platform
bed). You may add a matching footboard which brings the footboard
height to 21" (see picture on lower right). For extra storage space
underneath your bed, you may add a set of Neahkahnie Underbed Drawers.
Our Neahkahnie Platform Beds and Bedroom Furniture productsare
made with the finest second-growth (no old growth) American Red Oak
and Eastern Maple wood. Finish options include unfinished,
finished with a hand rubbed Danish Tung Oil, or finished with a Dark
Walnut Oil (oak only). Our unfinished and Danish Tung Oil finish
options are available at no extra charge, and the Dark Walnut Oil
finish is available for an additional fee. A VOC-free All Natural 100%
Danish Oil is also available for an additional fee. All of our
products have concealed connectors and are easy to assemble and
disassemble if necessary.

platform beds come with solid poplar wood slats
held together with straps for easy assembly of your bed. Our
platform beds are made with futon,
mattress and foam pad requirements in mind and are built to offer
sturdy support to all. However, if you are you concerned about needing
extra support for your spring mattress,
latex or foam mattress or futon, we offer options to increase
the amount of slats on your bed. Our poplar
slats are approximately 2" wide have about 3.2" of
space between each slat. If
you select the Premium Slat Upgrade (additional fee), the spaces
the slats will be reduced to approximately 1.65". If
you select the Ultimate Slat Upgrade (additional fee), the space
the slats will be reduced to approximately 1/2". For futons, we do not
the Ultimate Slat Upgrade as futons need space between the slats in
to breathe properly. Latex or foam mattresses, however, benefit from
having smaller spaces between the slats. Simply click on the "Add to
below and then make your choice.
standard Neahkahnie platform bed frames are built solid and sturdy with
3-1/4" rails, headboard and footboard crosspieces. However, for those
who want a more traditional heirloom look with even more support and
strength than our solid standard frame, we offer the Artisan Frame
Upgrade with 5-3/4" rails, headboard and footboard crosspieces. This
upgrade significantly changes the look and feel of the bed while still
retaining the beauty and distinctiveness of this platform bed style.
Simply click on the "Add to
below and then make your choice. *Please
note: If you choose the Artisan Frame Upgrade with
the Add Footboard option, the footboard will not include spindles--just
an open space between the top of the 5-3/4" crosspiece below, then a
gap, and then a 3-1/4" crosspiece above on 21" footboard legs. (The

Finish: You may
choose to have your bed
unfinished or finished with Danish Tung Oil. For an additional fee,
you may have your bed finished with Dark Walnut Oil (Oak only) or
finished with our special VOC-free All Natural Danish Oil. Simply
click on the "Add to Cart" button
below and then make your choice. Please Note:
Because the All Natural Danish Oil contains no petro-chemical
driers (VOCs), it stays wetter longer and therefore emits an odor
longer than the standard Danish Tung Oil. For
people with chemical sensitivities (MCS) or odor sensitivities, we
strongly recommend ordering your
bed unfinished and applying your own finish.
Y-Leg Support Legs
(Full, Queen and King Beds Only): The
platform bed frames
are built solid and sturdy. The standard Full and Queen size beds have
a center rail that runs under the slats from the front to the back of
the beds and provides extra strength and support to the frame.
Optionally, though not necessary, you may add a "Y-Leg"
Support Leg (extra fee) for placement under the center support rail on
the Full or Queen beds. The King beds come with 2 Center
Support Rails so you may add 2 Y-Leg
Support Legs (1 under each Center Support Rail). The
Support Legs add additional support and strength to the frame
and is a platform bed requirement by some mattress manufacturers.
Simply click on the "Add to
below and then make your choice if you wish to add this option.
Wood Type: You have
a choice of either second growth solid American Red Oak or second
solid Eastern Maple. Both wood choices are extremely solid and
durable. The picture at the top of the screen and above right

the Optional Matching Footboard (see below for
Bed Height Options:
You may add 3 inches to the height of your bed. This will make the
platform sit higher and add to the space under the bed. Alternatively,
you may lower the bed height by 4" or 7". You will not be able to use
the Underbed Drawers or the Box Spring Option (see below) if you choose
to lower the height of your bed.

Headboard Gap Option for
Thick Mattresses and Box Spring Option: Do you have an extra
thick mattress or futon (thicker than 8 inches)? No problem. You can
increase the space between the top of the slats and the bottom cross
piece on the headboard and enjoy a fuller view of your headboard above
your tall mattress or futon. See the table below. If you will be using
a box spring with your mattress, you will want to choose the Box
Spring Option. For any of these options, simple click on the
Add to Cart button on the bed of your choice and then select your
options from the drop-down menus provided on the shopping cart page.
Please note, you may not use the Box Spring Option if you choose to
lower the height of your bed. Also, the Box Spring Option lowers the
height under the side rails by 3 inches.

to your order. The picture on the right shows the standard Neahkahnie
Underbed Drawers with Oak Fronts and Poplar Sides. Each of the Underbed
Drawers measures 32" wide x 17" deep x 6" tall (drawer front is 32-1/4" wide and sits on free rolling
casters (the total height with casters is about 7-3/8"). Our standard Neahkahnie Underbed Drawers
come with either Oak or Maple fronts, and Poplar sides. If the
sides of your drawers will be visible from the end of the bed, you may
want to add the "Same Wood Side Upgrade" for an
additional fee. These upgraded Underbed Drawers use the same wood and
finish on the sides that you choose for your drawer fronts (either Oak
or Maple). The Neahkahnie Underbed Drawers are only sold in sets
of two and will not work on any option where the bed is lowered
including the Box Spring Option. You may fit up to four Underbed
Drawers (two under each side of the bed) for Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen
and King sized beds.
