Hey everyone, I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I am building a bed and the entire thing will be upholstered (headboard and rails). I am trying to figure out what material to use for the rails. I want the rails to be fairly tall (8-10 inches) and thick as a bed rail should be. I was originally going to use board from the home improvement store (1×10) but that seems to thin. It seems Iike 2×10 lumber would be a good thickness, but that would be way too heavy!
Any thoughts or suggestions? What do others use as the core of an upholstered project?
