I want to build a headboard for my son using Baseball bats similar to designs found online for sale. It’s a Queen size bed and measures out to about 60inches across and I believe it was 29inches high at the top of the mattress. I was initially looking at using 31inch bat blanks for the headboard but then I started thinking about how high the overall headboard would be. Even if I designed the base to sit 2, 3, 4 inches below the mattress.
I’m new to all this woodworking stuff and I’ve read a lot hear and there, watched a lot of Roy Underhill over the years and finally getting to play at something I’ve always wanted to do.
I read something somewhere about dimension and design ratio, dealing with furniture making. The Golden Rule, ratio, measurements, etc. I’ve read a few things on it but nothing that really makes it clear to me yet.
