Hi Junie! 10/9/2012
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 & Zach
Hi Junie! 5/15/2012
I just want to thank you and that wonderful artist- husband of yours for a
wonderful experience. The bed is beautiful!
It was so nice to meet your family and did I mention how much we
appreciate them making that delivery?? I'm just sorry I didn't get to meet
you.I have to tell you a sort of funny thing.....I have looked at your
website so many times, but mainly at the beds and construction info.
Never looked at the home page. I'm fairly embarrassed to admit that.
So, I should have known that I was expecting a lovely piece from a
master Finnish craftsman. You guys are SO good! And it was nice to see
what you look like.
I hope I didn't scare the boys. My eyes were still fairly swollen. It's been
a slower recovery than I expected. But better today.
Good luck to all of you, and again, thank you.
It's been a pleasure.
By the way, we are really enjoying the bed frame. We were getting very
tired of sleeping on the floor, but the beauty and quality of what we got
was worth the wait.
Please tell Petteri that I am very impressed with the ease at which this
went together and that my wife is very very happy about the style, finish,
and quality of the wood and of the workmanship
Thank You Junie & Petteri,
I recently received an oak platform bed as a gift from my best friend. I
have to say I was pleasantly surprised.
If you are looking for a good, sturdy and solid wood bed then I strongly
suggest that you look into Finnwood Designs. I'm using the full sized
bed with extra slats, as I'm a pretty big fella. I can actually jump onto
this bed and it does not move, give or even creak. The oak wood is
beautiful. If I had shopped for something locally, I would have never
received the same quality craftsmanship for the price.
Never mind the wait. It's worth it!

Hi Junie -
Hope the guys are all rested up from their long journey!
You certainly don't disappoint! The furniture is exquisite! We're totally
When you send the slats for the bed to us, could you include a nut?
We're missing one .... it secures the side board to the headboard.
Will definitely send pictures to you once the room is put together .... then
we can start to talk about my son's bed!
Regards, Chris (This was last year 3/2011 and now have their son's bed
Just a quick note to let you know that the bed arrived in excellent
condition. I am currently in the process of staining it and will send you a
picture when I have it assembled. Even though it is not together yet the
workmanship is beautiful and well worth the wait. Thank you so much.
-The bed arrived yesterday. In spite of two crushed areas on the boxes
your excellent job of packaging saved the day. I was a packaging
engineer in one of my past lives and know a good job when I see one.
A+ My compliments to your husband’s craftsmanship. The wrench is a
nice touch. Gary E.
My bed arrived, we put it together, and I LOVE it. It is just beautiful, and
very comfortable. It's a little tall for one of my dogs to jump onto, but
the space underneath is perfect for them to sleep and hide from the
world. At first, they were a little bit afraid of the bed, but now they love it
too. Thank you again for all your help, and I'm glad I was patient. It
was worth the wait, and again, I love the bed.
Best, (elevated bed)
Hi Junie, just wanted to let you know the bed was a hit! Looks beautiful
and craftsmanship is impeccable, well worth the wait so great job, thanks
very much and best of luck to you all, God bless!
Hi Junie, You were correct, it is a beautiful bed! I have never seen such a
better packing job and I see many of them at UPS. I completed 4 coats
of minwax tung oil. I wet sanded the oil into the wood. It looks fantastic!
My folks came up to stay over last weekend and my Dad helped with the
final assembly. He was impressed with how well everything fit together
and its sturdiness! It really matches my other Birch pieces well, though
they have many more grain spots. My Mom thinks the headboard is too
low, but, I like it as is as I have it located under a window. It fits
perfectly! The only problem that we had is that the hardware supplied did
not include the washers pictured in the directions. Fortunately, my handy
boyfriend Jack has an ample supply and we did not have to go th the
store. All in all, I am more than satisfied! It is a wonderful piece of
furniture! Just what I wanted and well worth the wait!! Thank you so
Ms. Junie Laine:
I am writing simply to thank you for the quality customer service that was
provided over the course of my order from Finnwood Designs. Such basic
manners are--it would seem--rare in the current business market. That
alone is a grand service, and I do hope the best for you and your
Mr. Petteri Laine:
I am most pleased with my bed frame, as it is perhaps one of the few
instances where I received exactly what was promised by a business, a
fact which I am certain is due to you and your assured craftmanship.
Please continue to do that, which you do very well, sir.
Again, thank you to both of you, and if there is anything I can do to
assist your business (which I am sure is booming) aside from word-of-
mouth, please do not hesitate.
(3 rd order ) Dear Junie, Petteri's work of art arrived today (while I was
gone)!! Once again... smooth as silk!! All the pieces easily went
together and at every point I admired the precision and work that goes
into each hole, each dowel (they have evolved from the other two beds!),
the sanding and stain. Every detail perfect! I feel like I have an "early
bed", a "middle bed" and a "current bed". I can see how each one
changes just a little...Thank you - Thank you!!! The wait was well worth
I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Thanks! Pictures when i recover from this long day.
dear petteri and junie thank you for working so hard to complete my
elevated platform bed... it only took me an hour to put it together
myself... perfectly crafted... and STURDY!!! and all my storage baskets
and bins are tucked neatly away underneath the comfy queen bed... YEA!
perfect guest room office combo... thanks thanks thanks again... (i will
try to send pictures) bridget
Thanks Junie - I'm not 100% following what your saying - perhaps a
crude diagram would help. (We sent a photo instead of a diagram)
Thanks Junie - the craftsmanship is brilliant. (safety rail design and
ladder for loft bed for younger child)
Just a quick note to let you know that the bed arrived in good condition
today. Jan and I have it half-assembled at this point, and we took a
break to refer to the Bookcase instructions, to be sure we knew which end
was really the headboard. Hey, a surplus of caution never hurt anybody!
....I am thrilled with the quality of the workmanship on this piece. When
Jan opened the long box, and started pulling out the slats, they were
made of such high quality wood that we weren't sure if they were the side
boards. Very, very nicely done, Petteri and Junie!
Slats arrived about 3pm. Yippee!!
Attached are the promised pictures.
Tell Petteri that his packaging is superb! Nothing damaged in any way in
Feel free to use us as a reference. The bed is just what we wanted.

Hello There -
Well, our bed finally got delivered on Friday and we found that it was
worth the wait. It went together effortlessly with each piece fitting
perfectly together. The finish is what we were worried about. We thought
that you may have rushed the staining and finishing and it would not be
suitable, but the satin finish is even and the color is beautiful. THX Beth
Junie, I received the packages in great shape. The drawers are installed
and are beautiful. Their design and materials show outstanding
craftsmanship, and I really appreciated the clear instructions. Thanks
Dear Junie and Petteri,
Just writing to say that the bed is beautiful. It is very sturdy and the
colour is just right! It took a long time coming but my knee and back are
very grateful that it is here!! We had our mattress on the floor and I was
dying in the morning! Over 50 :). Thanks again for such excellent
workmanship. It has clearly been made with a discerning eye and
Thanks again, Lysa J and Ronald G
I got the bed today and finally got it assembled. It is beautiful! The
perfect simple style to fit in with the rest of my antique farmhouse-style
furniture. I am also really glad I let you guys stain it... it would have
been a big pain to do by myself!
Please tell Petteri how pleased I am with it :-)
Petteri & Junie
Joan and I received the bed yesterday and I assembled it last night. In
one of our phone conversations I mentioned that I have done quite a bit
of cabinet making, mostly in hardwoods with some fairly sophisticated
joinery. (When I moved to Manhattan, I sadly put my tools into storage).
I have designed and built a number of pieces for my home and for
others and I consider myself quite skilled and knowledgeable on the
So, imagine how thrilled I was when I opened the boxes and saw the high
quality of the wood, hardware and craftsmanship, the crispness of the
work and the extremely high quality of the finish... a beautifully executed
design and a joy to assemble. Thank you so much for a beautiful bed....
if I had another bedroom I'd order another one.... Bravo!!!......Rich
The kids and I just got back from vacation yesterday and there was a
large package on our living room floor. We knew what it was but were so
surprised at how beautiful it is!! The maple wood in gorgeous with it's
color intense variation in color! My husband is out of town but the kids
and I are going to put it together today.
Thank you so much for the beautiful bed. It is exactly what we wanted!!
Dear Junie and Petteri,
thank you very much for the new bed. The bed came out very well. My
husband put it together this last weekend while I took the kids to a
birthday party. He said that it was very easy to put together. Now I can
use the space underneath for some badly needed storage (we live in a
1000 ft condo with two kids and very little storage space). If I ever get
around to making a dust ruffle for it, I'll take a picture and send it to
you. Thank you again for such a nice king bed frame.
Junie and Petteri,
I am a little overdue in sending pictures of the Bookcase Headboard that
you made for Mom. It is absolutely beautiful and Mom (and Rockwell,
the Golden Retriever) is absolutely thrilled with it. The wood and stain
color are beautiful. Above all, the craftsmanship is superior. The doors
slide like butter and overall, the piece is so smooth and so well
constructed. Thank you. You truly have provided our family with
heirloom for many generations to come.
Karen S, Donna S, & Rockwell!
Hi Junie. Good to know. The bed is beautiful and the design is not
difficult to assemble and the strength is quite obvious. This is
built to really last. I am very happy with and my daughter will use
the bed tonight. Steve
First, let me tell you how happy I am with my new bed. Yesterday I
finished assembling the bookcase and drawers. It is just what I wanted,
a beautiful and functional bed which is built to last! The spacious under
bed drawers are wonderfully spacious, and the bookcase adds even more
Having the bed made in Cherry wood was the right choice, as the clean
lines of the bed compliment the richness of color and the grain of this
fine hardwood. Excellent work Petteri! Thank you.
Hi Junie and Petteri,
The bed arrived and it is wonderful! It went together very quickly and I
am impressed with the workmanship and how sturdy it is! I would
recommend one to others and thank you very much!
Hi Junie and Petteri -
I just wanted to let you know that I finally had a chance to open up the
3 boxes and set up my bed this morning. I am thrilled with it! It is
absolutely beautiful, I was able to set it up by myself without any
problems whatsoever, and it is just perfect - absolutely worth the wait!
Thank you so much for taking my idea and a picture and making me a
wonderful, solid, Mission-style platform bed, that I can easily set up
and take down myself. I'm still not "settled" in my life, and will
probably be moving again either this year or next - and it's amazing for
me to be able to look at this beautiful bed and know that I can
disassemble it and take it with me easily the next time I have to move!
I'm so glad I found your ebay listing and web site and ordered this bed
from you! Have a great day! And thank you again!
- Hi Junie and Petteri,
I went and picked up my bed. Petteri, you're a true artist! I LOVE IT! I
tried to leave feedback but it wouldn't accept. I think because I already
left feedback for this item? Anyway, I'm soooooo pleased. Put it together
myself with no help. What a great design and fastening system!. I'm
trying it without the box spring. I like the look much better that way.
THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH.
- Hi Junie and Petteri,
The rest of the bed was delivered this morning by a huge semi-truck! I
was so excited - I cannot tell you!!
I put this wonderful bed together in less than half an hour - single
handedly! Since I live so far from any neighbor who could help hold the
bed while I attached the headboard and foot board to the side rails, I
simply turned the bed upside down! I cannot tell you how easy it was.
Petteri's directions are so simple and easy to follow. At first I thought,
oh, dear, no diagrams.... but I didn't need any pictures to follow the
instructions. Then, joy of all joys, the pieces smoothly came together.
Everything fit absolutely perfectly! Such simple elegance.
I just love the bed - the color, the height (thanks for putting the taller
legs on for me), the grain of the wood... everything! As I was putting it
together I often admired Petteri's fine touches... his art.
Thank you both so very much!!
-Hi Junie and Petteri,
Well, dad came over and it took him and me - are you ready for this?
A grand total of ONLY 20 minutes to:
1. Open the 2 boxes
2. Take out all the items
3. Read the instructions
4. Put together the entire bed frame
5. Remove the empty boxes
6. Open the Temper Medic mattress box
7. Removed the mattress from the box
8. Carry the Queen size mattress from the porch
up the stairs to the 2nd floor
9. Put the mattress on the bed frame
10. Sit down and admire the bed/mattress
And would you believe the hardest part was carrying the Tempur Pedic
Mattress up the stairs to the 2nd floor? It's true.
I must tell you this whole experience of buying the bed frame from you
has been a complete and total pleasure.
I want to thank you soooo much for your PATIENCE in working with me
with the extras I requested and you worked with me on (i.e. extra slats,
leg length, shipping details and most importantly the appropriate color
stain). When you told me you wanted to go to a local furniture store to
check the precise color of the Broyhill Attic Heirlooms furniture I had to
be able to match the color, I was extremely, extremely impressed.
From your feedback I knew you were trustworthy, but when you told me
you were going to a local store for color check, that just was icing on the
I wanted to leave feedback for you, but I guess I bought it from you
offline as I don't have an option to leave feedback for you.
If you ever need a referral please feel free to contact me. I would be
more than happy to tell anyone what a great job you have done for me,
and others I am sure.
Thanks so much!
