Finnwood Designs has been in business for 14 plus years. We make platform beds and other custom furniture. Our products are green. The beds and furniture are made chemical free unfinished. We have finishing products that are also green. Please contact us to discuss your options.

We have a basic Simplicity line and our up-line. The basic line includes our cottage simplicity bed. They are available a low cost and thus do not include fine sanding. Sanding can be added at an additional cost so they would be ready to stain when purchased. Sanding takes several hours of work and so it would raise the price of the basic bed. The Poplar wood is great for staining and painting. Milk paint is great and offers a green solution to your finishing

Our main wood products are made out of Tulip Poplar and bought from a supplier that supports responsible forest management and is FSC Chain of Custody (CoC) certified. FSC certification provides a credible link between production and consumption of forest products, enabling consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that benefit people and the environment as well as providing ongoing business value.

Finishing information:

Finishing Sanding:

Involves several hours of sanding in preparation for finishing.


Staining is done after sanding. our sanding process is several levels of sand paper up to the finest. Then staining is done and several top coats are applied. Each top coat has to have time to dry in between. 


Painting involves 3 primer coats that are each dried and sanded before going on to the next. After this step is done then the top coats are applied as necessary. This is a very time intensive process and thus is more costly than staining.

Just a few of our Testimonials:

Junie, It arrived yesterday and it's beautiful!  Exactly what I ordered and
just as lovely in person as on the website. Maybe even more so. Thanks
so much!  Megg

Hi Junie,
I just want to say I couldn't be more satisfied with my bed and the service
you provided. It is absolutely beautiful and everything I ever dreamed of.
I was able to assemble it all by myself and can’t get over how detailed
and precise all the pieces came. It went together flawlessly. The wait was
so worth it and this bed is sure to last me a lifetime. Please thank Petteri
and your son for their fine craftsmanship and I will be sure to recommend
your products to all my friends. Sincerely, Chris A.

We really like the bed. It was worth the wait.

Hi Junnie,
The bed and drawers were put together and the 'fit and finish' are
superb!  I'm very happy with my bed.
My place looks like a construction zone... painters come in tomorrow.  
I'll send you pictures of the bed in my bedroom once I get my place
sorted out.
And you may always use me as a reference to anyone who needs a vote
of confidence before ordering. I have nothing but positive things to say... so delighted with the workmanship!

Hi Junie!
I just wanted to thank you and Petteri for our second, amazing Finnwood
bed!  I couldn't get our kitty, Zombie, to cooperate with the photo process
but my two well behaved pups, Gracious (top) and Hutch (bottom) were
more than happy to pose for our gratitude pic!
Thank you again!
Nicole & the rest of the crew

Many thanks to you, Junie and Petteri,
The bed arrived in good condition and it looks great.  It goes so well with
our teak looking furniture in our bedroom. And the mattress is so
comfortable and so soft on top.  I wouldn't understand anyone thinking
that the 12" mattress was too firm.
Again, we do appreciate your quality craftsmanship, Petteri, and your
delightful personality and prompt responses, Junie.

Hi Junie!  
We just got our bed together and oh mi!  It is beyond amazing… I mean,
just incredible.  The craftsmanship is completely unlike anything we've
ever owned before.  We feel so lucky to have a beautiful piece like this.  
My husband is super picky and very judgmental, I'd say, about furniture
(being an engineer I suppose that's his nature) and even he was
speechless when putting this bed together and after stepping back to see
everything complete… rather the only thing he did say over and over was
"wow", "wow"… needless to say we are very, very happy.  Please send our
praise and thanks to the craftsmen as well. Nicole & Z
