So being that it's going to be another low dough Christmas around here, I decided to build a new headboard for the wife and I.
A friend has a nice stack of sapele sitting in a pile that he welcomed me to use, and I had a set of cherry raised panel doors just sitting in my basement collecting dust. I never thought I'd see myself spraying cherry black, but what the hell right? I thought the contrast came out pretty nice.
The job came out pretty good for only having a few days to work on it in between trying to get my regular work done. It's mostly dado and pocket screw assembly, and the project also put a new jig in the shop. I needed to build the jig in the pic to make the pyramid caps.
I think she'll be happy with it.
