headboard pt 1

Headboard ready for upholstery …

I should have used 1x6 instead of 2x6 and 1/2” ply instead of 3/4”. This weighs 50 lb easily, so I’m going to hang the headboard on the wall now instead of mounting it to the bottom frame. I made a “french cleat” for hanging.

French Cleat

Upholstered Bed

Wanted to build a bed similar to the Tate Bed, but for a lot less money. Base is done, headboard is next.
