Queen sized headboard, side rails and footboard I made for my daughter’s room out of poplar. Converted an old fireplace surround that came with my 1840’s house into the headboard, adding the beadboard paneling to the area that the fireplace box used to be, and adding a framework to stiffen and strengthen the surround. Used knockdown bed hardware to connect the rails to the head and foot. Beadboard panels on footboard are laminated to 1/4” thick plywood core to form a 3/4” thick panel. Pocket hole joinery used throughout.
