Make a greenwood bed

Grteenwood bed

Over four days, Rob Hill will help you make a greenwood bed that you will look forward to climbing into every night.

Provided with pre-halved greenwood ash, you will clamp it into a shave horse and remove the outer layers of bark with a draw knife or spoke shave to reveal beautiful pale wood which will run the length and breadth of your bed. You will then make the head and foot of your bed from smaller branches of your tree.


Having made all your components, you will construct the frame using mortise and tenon joints, ready to finally peg together in your bedroom... essentially this bed is an elegant flat pack design that you can easily transport home.

According to Google, the average person spends 26 years in bed why not make it a beautiful one...

Rob Hill - Wernog Wood

Rob Hill is one of the founders of Wernog Wood and

has single handedly built the workshops, the cosy Red Shed, the stunning ash bed within it and almost every other structure you will see when you get here. We highly recommend you book your course nights in the Red Shed to try out the comfy bed he made especially for this woodland cabin..


As a mechanic and builder, Rob is fascinated by how things work and how they are made. He loves the challenge of creating the unusual and Wernog Wood is the perfect opportunity to renovate old buildings and to build quirky new structures.
