This heirloom-quality project features a challenging arched moulding and matching solid wood panels. But don't worry, we'll show you the simple steps used to build it.
We've simplified the design of the arch-top headboard for a classic-looking straight-top version with all the same fine details.
These simple bookends allow you to try out some of the same techniques used on the arch-top headboard. And with some scrap MDF and hardwood you can build them in a weekend.
