Well this is a first for me . A bud of mine is switching from his queen size bed to king size . He didnt want to invest in a new furniture group and asked if i would take on the project . So what to do about the profiles on the headboard and the color matching …this bed is over 20 years old .
So i started off by taking the headboard apart and added the extensions to the top rail(used dowels and pocket screws). I marked where the profiles lines were and took it to the table saw
i hand plained the corner then with a blade scraped the inner profile .
Is ther an easyer way to do this ??? I know it didnt come out perfect but i couldnt find the the router bit anywhere …i used epoxy puddy to copy the profile then use sandpaper to cut it out but that didnt work …so i scraped a close looking profile .
for the dummy board i decided to just do the whole piece over again
I did have the right profile for the dummy board so it came out pretty good !!
And here it is together …question to all …what is a good way to color match the rest of the headboard ??.
