Home Made Headboard

I designed and made this headboard for a friends mother. Its a very simple and cheap alternative to buying one from a shop.

I used softwood planks biscuit and glued together to create a finished board 2000mm x 800mm. I then created the curved decorative finish by using a template, router and top bearing cutter.

Create two posts and house out for the headboard to sit snuggling in, I then made two hook battens to place it firmly hooked onto the wall.
