This is the headboard I made for my bed. The last two pictures show the 2×4 structure I used to wrap with pine. Most of it is wrapped with 1×4 standard pine and some 1×6 as well. I used a 2×6 for the top with a cove profile routed along the bottom edge. I stained it with Old Masters Provincial gel stain and finished with 3 coats of satin poly. Thanks for looking!

Beautiful headboard! Your pine is gorgeous, has very nice patterns and grains and the finish sets it off. Superb work!
