This is a project I completed a few weeks ago and finally got some photos. It ain’t easy to photograph something this size without getting alot of background distractions. I ended up buying 3 sheets of white masonite material that were 4×8 each.
The headboard is King size and is 48” tall to fit under a bedroom window 48” from the floor. I used spalted Oak and did the inlays with walnut. The slats are alternating oak and walnut.
The side rails and footboard are just spalted oak with no inlays since the client said she did not want a foorboard…but wanted her fancy box spring cover to show on the end.
The finish is boiled linseed oil…four coats and then waxed and buffed.
