This project is made of 3/4” Oak Plywood and trimmed out 3/4” oak. My wife wanted a headboard that was thin, funtional, and most importantly, able to use it as a backrest to read in bed. So, this is what I came up with. The “backrest” is a couple of cabinets which are angled back 15 degrees for comfort. Enough shelving for our drinks, clocks, remotes, and small lights for reading. The headboard stands 5’ high and at it’s deepest, 9 inches.

Nice work and design. But where’s the center sloping headrest for the big dogs? :-)
