This is my first post and I am brand brand new to any sort of woodworking. I have been messing around making bowls from spit firewood but I have not made anything beyond that yet. I am planning on making a chevron style headboard once the weather starts to get nicer, for my girlfriend and I but I have some questions specifically about joinery and possibly projects that will prepare me for making this headboard. The headboard will be 64”w x 64”h and will be split equally into 4 quadrants. I will be using reclaimed wood and each quadrant will contain several pieces of wood each at a 45 degree angle with the end of each board facing toward the center of the 4 quadrants (if that makes sense? picture a giant X with each “leg” of the X being a quadrant). I am wondering what the best way is to join each of these 45 degree angle boards together, biscuit joinery? This will be what joins the thickness of each board together.
If you’re able to understand what I am talking about great, if not I could post an image of the design I’m looking at but I’m not sure about the copyright rules on the forum.
Finally if you’ve gotten through all of that and you’re still here, thank you and if you have any ideas about what might help prepare me for this project.
Thank you ahead of time for any help you can give me, it’s good to be here.
