Reclaimed Wood Headboard Design

Thanks Ana for sharing this great & easy design. A new "Mom & Pop" specialty rough cut lumber yard just opened in town so I wanted to try to support them on their new adventure. My wife & I needed a headboard so this design really hit the spot.

I used both cherry and a curly maple as the two types of wood. Because everything is rough cut, it is much less expensive. Just run the boards through a planner and an edger and your all set.

I applied several coats of a clear hand rubber varnish for the finish. This really made grains "pop".

Everything was quick and easy. We couldn't be happier.

If your using a stain finish, take the time to lay out the boards so that the grain patterens are going in the direction that you want them to be before you start to assemble the project.
