Canopy Bed | New Yankee Workshop
On this episode of New Yankee Workshop
The main business of Leonard's Antiques, a group of highly respected antique stores located in the Northeast, is the making and selling of reproduction beds.
Using both old original elements salvaged from the past and newly created parts necessary to meet modern bed dimensions, the craftsmen at Leonard's know all about beds.
Norm pays Leonard's a visit and meets the owner, Jeff Jenkins, for a behind-the-scenes look at how the beds are made. Then he returns to the workshop and creates a beautiful tiger maple version sized to fit a queen. The four turned posts and a handsome headboard lend distinction to a good night's sleep.
