This is a king size headboard made from a California Redwood slab that measure 4” thick x 34”H x 72” W. The posts are 6” x 6” x 60” Western Red Cedar. The slab is from California. Both edges are “live” (guess it was a small tree!). I hand carved the Tree of Life in the center and routed the surrounding rings. The intent was to create a feeling of looking at a reflection in a pond with ripples. I added the 2 stained glass dragonflies to look as if they’re flying just above the surface. The photos don’t show the effect too well but I still liked the piece. It was a wedding gift to my son and his wife. It was the first major piece that I ever made.
