Ramsey Standard Frame

Our solid, waste free frame is now part of our stable of generic kits. Available in a 2 slat or 3 slat version the design is based on utilizing a wing section and square corner block. This reduces the amount of timber required to make a round block. Carding is not necessary as the wing section creates a smooth profile.
