The original plans had thin slats with gaps in-between. I did not like that style so I used wide slats and no gaps. Made from white oak, stained with “natural stain”, one coat of gloss polyurthane. Soon I will start the nightstands and dresser to match.

Great Headboard.
I agree with you to get rid of thin slats with gaps, they usually tend to collect dust.

Great job and the style is perfect with the oak grain! I really like it!

Very nice! I like this very much. You might want to think about multiples coats of polyurethane. Just some more protection for it.

I like it!! What did you use for the main side posts? I’m looking to do something similar, but I’m brand new and don’t know what to use for the posts. I’m thinking 3×3…?

Have your say...
