Jarrah Bed Materials & Dimensions

Jarrah is native species of hardwood only found in South Western Australia. This natural beauty has many beneficial characteristics such as high density, high durability, and resistence to rot which is why it is the perfect timber for your bed base.

Jarrah is 100% real solid timber 

Frame and legs (all visible parts) uses only strong solid hardwood 

Slats & centre beams uses only solid untreated Pine.

Connecting brackets from Hafele Germany (we’ve used the same ones for over 30 years).

Protected with a natural vegetable oil wood wax (100% plant-based and food safe).

A note about solid timber: As we use 100% sustainable solid timber, all pieces have unique knots & grains. These grains do not impact strength and durability, but adds character and can’t be compared to engineered finishes like veneer (which usually has a consistent finish, although are more prone to chipping and peeling). We also cannot guarantee all timber on the bed to be colour-matched, although we try our best without severely increasing wastage.

Be aware that many “solid timber” products only use some solid timber, which are often combined with native wild-harvested timber or engineered timber like veneer or plywood.

Lifetime Guarantee

  • Covered for the life of the original purchaser against any break or squeak.
  • Any issues, we will either attempt repairing it or simply sending a replacement base or part at no charge

Care

  • No special care is needed: we use a water-resistant, natural vegetable oil finish designed to protect the timber. Can be cleaned with a damp cloth and mild soap if required.

Frequently Asked Bed Base Questions

We don't hide behind technical lingo - we simply use the highest-quality, most-trusted natural materials available on the worldwide market today. Beyond our many eco-accreditations, importantly, all our main materials are 100% sustainably-sourced - meaning there are no lasting effects on the environment.

When we choose sustainably and responsibly harvested timber over other materials, we reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and their consequent carbon emissions. Aluminium, steel, concrete and plastic are not produced from renewable sources. Our timber is sustainable, carbon sequestering and natural. Further, it is extremely strong, relatively lightweight and looks great!

Not only is timber the most sustainable building material, all our timbers come from 100% regrown plantation forests that have been independently certified to strict Australian and international standards.

  • All our timber comes from certified 100% regrown plantation forests
  • Our slats and inner support system are made from solid untreated Pine

We are also proud to share that all our timber suppliers adhere to the following wildly recognised certifications:

  • Australian Forestry Standard (AS4708:2013), which is internationally recognised by the Program for the Endorsement of Forestry Certification (PEFC).
  • Further, all suppliers passed international certification for effective Environmental Management Systems (ISO14001:2015).

We use solid timber from FSC-certified plantations and certified native forests, ensuring the sustainability, strength and health of your bed.

  • Jarrah: Sourced from native forests in Western Australia under Certified Forest Management
  • Pine: Certified plantations in  New Zealand 

Yes! In fact, just one person is able to set up our Timber Bed Bases in 5-10 minutes!

We’ve designed our beds for a complete ease of assembly, with clip-in brackets that slide into place without the need for any tools.

Check out our Assembly Video above for a detailed look!

We’ve been using the same German brackets for over 20 years with absolutely no issues – they are the tried and tested winner for complete strength and ease-of-use.

All of our Timber products are finished with a food-safe natural vegetable oil Wood Wax from Osmo, because they’re 100% plant based and food safe, and contains no silicon. This product is a great choice for maintaining furniture in a safe, natural way, that protects and maintains the wood against harmful factors.

Yes! If you’d like to request to leave the timber raw + unfinished, just let us know in the order notes section at checkout. We will sand down the timber, but not add the Wood Wax Oil (as standard). This means you are free to stain the frame however you like. Unfortunately, we cannot do this for you.

*Note: Leaving the timber unfinished can cause the timber to wear down from environmental factors more easily over time. Please use a wood wax or Orange Oil (found at Bunnings) at least every 18 months to 2 years to prolong the life of the wood.

Our Timber Bed Bases in the Standard or Floating design have the following weight dimensions, as compacted in the two packages.

  • Our timber is surprisingly light, and easy to manoeuvre 
  • With packaging, both boxes can vary up to 20-30kg

An updated version of our Bed Base dimensions can be found at the top of this page in the drop-down section ‘Click Here for Specs + Dimensions’.

*Note: The Floating Design have the same internal + external dimensions, but the legs are hidden beneath the frame. This does not impact any weight-bearing capacity and is just as sturdy.

Both the Original and the Floating designs sport excellent durability and structural support. We use thick, solid timber, made to last a lifetime and for all kinds of mattresses – it can even have a weight capacity of 600kg.

Because it is so strong, using pure timber also requires certain manufacturing techniques to ensure it performs properly. When two pieces of timber rub against one another, the friction creates creaks and squeaks. This means that we have designed our frames with very slight gaps between beams – they are unnoticeable and do not impact any structural support.

‘Wobbly’ Headboard?

As mentioned above, its important that timber has sufficient distance between pieces. This means our Headboards will have a fair amount of movement to them. This is completely normal, and never noticeable unless physically shaken back and forth by hand.

Information & Warranty Info PDF

Yes! All our timber bed bases are designed to support the weight and durability of any mattress. We use solid timber pine slats that is known for its extremely strong support.

The construction and material take a great force to bend, and with our timber slats designed wide enough and spaced out narrowly, as well as having a central beam and grounded support, this provides sufficient stability for any mattress. 

We’ve designed our beds to sit flush with the edge of the bed base structure, making it not only easier for changing bed sheets, but stylish and practical.

Although our Timber Bed Bases are designed without a recess and mattresses sit directly on top, we have never encountered any issues related to mattresses (ours and others!) moving around the base while it’s being used. The weight pressure of any mattress is heavy enough to keep it in place and rarely pushed off.

Yes, you can! We can send you 2x Struts and Headboard to attach to your existing base.

We charge the price of the headboard, plus $50 for packaging + postage. Simply contact us and we can arrange delivery (Australia-wide!) or pick-up from our Perth warehouse. You’ll need brackets at the back of your base, so we’ll have to replace your back beam too If you don’t already have brackets there!).

If you purchase a Base Only now, you can selected ‘Add Headboard Brackets’ at Checkout for $20 extra.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) are carbon-based chemicals that easily become vapours or gases.

Our Timber Bed Bases are solid wood, not plywood or MDF based. This means that any pure wood itself naturally emits a very low level of VOC’s into the atmosphere, and is not considered severely toxic. Our Hardwax wood oil (Osmo) also has low-VOC content.

We are confident that our Timber Bed Bases will not significantly impact what’s called, ‘Offgassing’ as solid wood naturally emit this as you breathe. 

We are determined to maximise our eco-friendly practices wherever possible. 

*More information can be found here

Unfortunately, we do not make any custom changes to our Timber Bed Base range. This includes changing the height of the legs, HB design or overall increasing the height of the base.

This is because our range is hand-made and designed to prevent against any creaking.

We do consider any suggestions or small changes including HB height. If you’re unsure of something, feel free to get in touch with us and we’ll answer any questions you may have.

So easy, it took no time at all!!! I chose Quokka because the base could be put together by one person and true to form, it was THAT easy. I also love that it can be disassembled and moved just as easily. The boxes arrived so well packaged and the frames are solid and made of quality wood. I have been using the bed for over a month and so far not a peep from any creaking. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting the ease and simplicity of a classic and quality bedframe.

Beautifully crafted bed, great value The bed was very easy to assemble. The bed does not creak and looks beautiful. We were so happy to find a bed crafted from sustainable timber and support a small Australian business. The bedside cubes are very cute. We love the hidden shelf! We choose this bed because it was nice a low, however, keep in mind if you have a deep mattress it will end up being quite a bed still.

About Our Natural Bamboo Covers

Why do you offer 2 covers for this size?

We are always looking for ways to improve our environmental impact, which is why we switched to our new Organic Cotton Covers as soon as we could – but it meant we have some very good quality stock leftover. Rather than put it to waste, we decided to offer it at a small discount to those who want it. Further, due to worldwide shortages and container delays, we may run out of stock of our Quilted covers, and may only be able to offer other covers for some sizes.

How is the ‘Bamboo’ cover different?

The main difference is our Cotton covers are made of 100% Certified Organic material, although our Bamboo covers were still sustainably sourced and 100% Natural. Both covers feel the same on the latex (acting as a minimal comfort layer to protect and hold the latex in place), both have zips on 3 sides and both are cold-machine washable. However, the Bamboo cover is more stretchy, so it can actually be a little easier to put the mattress together. And you can always switch to a Cotton cover later if you wish, which we would do for half-price (Queen $240 $120 or King $290 $145). Thanks for your support!

Save $50 per Base or Mattress

It’s simple: Buy 2 or more bases and/or mattresses, and you’ll save an EXTRA $50 on each one!

For example, bundle any base with any mattress to save $100 instantly. Note: The same applies to just 2 bases, just 2 mattresses, or multiples of each one. Discount applies automatically. Happy sleeping!
