Cherry and maple headboard. Basic shape, kind of goes with some other pieces in the room. I used a kreg jig for the first time and it made assembly a piece of cake. Each section was made to maximize my size of plywood and the middle is a bit smaller but the outside two are the same. The frame is 5’ wide and 5’ tall to the end posts.

This is a really nice project. I like maple and cherry in combination.

Thanks for sharing.

Looks great. Do you have plans you made it from? I’m looking for head board plans.
