My latest project and my own design – a solid oak, queen size headboard. I milled this lumber myself and was very taken with some of the beautiful configurations in the oak.
This was my first attempt at raised panels and won’t be my last. I really like the look.
I used pocket hole joinery for much of the assembly. The crown mold was purchased but gave me the look I wanted. The golden oak stain matches much of our other furniture and three coats of satan polyurethane should give it a lifetime of durability.
Now I wished I’d made it taller. The pillows and shags (not shown here) cover up most of the wood work. Oh well, lesson learned!
