Very artistic, but don’t you worry birds might nest in there ;)

Interesting design for a headboard. I like it. The vines remind me of my hair in the mornings.

Very nice. But . . . I’d HATE to have to dust that thing. ;)

Great piece of art, but not very functional.

Not functional, I am not sure what function a head board serves other than being the most expensive part of the bed? I thought they were all decorative. With that said this one is no dough something different. Very cool!

I’m with Witt and Rashbar, kind of hard to dust and how do you put your pillow up against it so you can have your head propped up for reading at night? I would call this a sculpture. It drew me in immediately. As a creative art form I think it’s beautiful. Given the right setting it would be good for practical reasons as well, such as a lodge or a retreat of some kind, but maybe not for your everyday bed. We have silver maples that drop dead twigs when the wind comes up, and I always collect them, and I always wondered what I might do with them. Your project gives me some ideas. Prost to your ingenuity and creativity!

mission accomplished. Thought. This is just another experiment that a friend uses and loves. I think I want to try it as a fence design. I think it will make a great accent.
