This is a pine headboard I made for a friend. It measures Height 61 3/4” Width 64 3/4” and the posts are 54 3/8”. The finish is 50% Rustoleum Weathered Gray and 50% MinWax Ebony. Polyurethane semigloss was the top coat. The main challenge was creating the carved pieced without a CNC, and getting the radius right. Thanks for taken a look.

I like the idea of creating something that detailed and elegant from a “rustic” wood like pine. Nice job.
