Maple is mainly used for furniture, paneling and millwork, kitchen cabinets, moldings, doors, musical instruments, and turnings. Maple is often used as a substitute for Cherry and Birch wood.
Maple has a white and light tannish brown heartwood, with darker colored pith flecks. The wood is generally straight-grained with a fine uniform smooth texture. The wood of Maple is heavy, hard and strong. It has very good bending properties, with good crushing strength and shock resistance.
The Latin name for oak, Quercus, means "a fine tree." The oaks have been key in America's industrial transformation: railroad ties, wheels, plows, looms, barrels and, of course, furniture and floors. The oak is the state tree of New Jersey. The sapwood of red oak is white to light brown and the heartwood is a pinkish reddish brown. The wood is similar in general appearance to white oak, but with a slightly less pronounced figure due to the smaller rays. The wood is mostly straight-grained, with a coarse texture. The wood is hard and heavy, with medium bending strength and stiffness and high crushing strength. It is very good for steam bending. Great wear-resistance.

Two coats of vinyl primer are applied to the bed before applying a Pigmented Lacquer (your paint color) on top.
Pigmented lacquer is a product in which paint and lacquer are mixed together. This gives the finished product a furniture grade finish, while achieving the solid color of paint.
You may choose to have your bed unfinished or primed only. This will allow you to be able to paint the bed a color, or creative finish, that works best for your room.
