I recently bought a king size sleep number bed. They wanted 900 dollars for a headboard and frame that was just particle board. So I bought a bunch of reclaimed Barn Wood and got to work. The frame is mortise and tennon beams. No stain was used just satin poly. The real challenge was all the nails, I bought a steel blade and slapped it on the unisaw. Sparks would fly when I hit a nail. I had to make a special sled to rip a 4 foot taper. Each wedge had a different angle so it was a slow process. The end results were good, I was really trying for a 3 dimension look. Total project took close to 60 hours, what do you think was it worth it?
