Picture 4 of 23 from Album My completed projects
This bed was made from the ground up but all you can see is the headboard. Again, someday it will be finished but for now we're sleeping in it. Posts were made from a pine 4x4. The frame of the headboard is made from 2x6 boards. Joinery was my first attempt at mortise and tenon, which worked well. The large panel with the hearts is MDF, used to create the look of vertical boards but without the expansion issues of a glued up panel of this size. Lettering written in the headboard says, "Always Kiss Me Goodnight", freehand plunge routed into the 2x6 without any sort of template or guide. I was just barely able to control the router and keep it on the board. Someday this will be stained and painted, both.
