Choosing the perfect wooden bed frame
We use real Australian hardwood timber in all our beds, complete with solid plantation Pine slat support system from WA. Naturally termite and water-resistant, our bases are conservatively rated at 600kg and backed by a lifetime guarantee against any break or even squeak. All timber comes from certified plantations that pass strict sustainability and eco-friendly regulations (read more below).
*Please note: 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 wood (which usually has a consistent finish). We also cannot guarantee all timber on the bed to be colour-matched, although we try our best without severely increasing wastage.
Frequently Asked 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.
See below for our most commonly asked questions about our range!
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 – it is actually ‘better than carbon neutral’ due to carbon stored during photosynthesis! Further, it is extremely strong, relatively lightweight and looks great!
Not only is timber the only truly renewable 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
- Just like the Quokka, our popular Jarrah wood is only found in one place in the world: the south-west of Western Australia!

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.

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.
As we use 100% sustainable timber, all pieces have unique knots & grains when they’re sourced. We try our best to colour-match without promoting any wastage. These grains do not impact strength and durability, but adds character and can’t be compared to engineered wood!
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 (as standard).
*Note: Leaving the timber unfinished can cause the timber to wear down from environmental factors more easily over time. Please use a basic 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
*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.
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.
Yes, you can! If you choose to purchase a separate Timber Headboard from us in the future, 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.
If you purchase a Base Only, let us know if you’d like to consider adding a Headboard later, and we will attach the HB Brackets to the back of your Base during manufacturing to make the process easier to attach later! Alternatively, we will replace the entire back beam.

Beautifully made, simple, elegant bed base and bedhead. Very happy! We purchased the king size Oak bed base and love it! Beautifully constructed with user in mind and so simple to put together. Was delivered to Queensland from Perth, and the extra humidity caused a little tightness with a couple of slats and joins, but nothing some talcum powder couldn't fix. Happy with delivery process and communications. Thanks Daniel! The base quality also complies with Sleeping Duck's stringent mattress warranty requirements and together the combination is perfect for us. Highly recommended!
Exactly what we wanted. It took less than 5 mins to assemble. It was easy to put together even though there was no instructions. No creaking when laying or sleeping on the bed. Nice simple lines and sturdy construction. Any communication with the team at Quokka was answered in a timely manner. Very happy with the whole quokka experience.
