PROJECTS
Arch-top headboard
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.

Straight-edged headboard
We've simplified the design of the arch-top headboard for a classic-looking straight-top version with all the same fine details.

Arch-top bookends
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.

Panelled blanket chest
A panelled front, dovetailed drawers that stand proud and bracket feet give this blanket chest an impressive look.

TECHNIQUES
Arched curved moulding
Spray painting tips
Installing a half mortise lock
Bracket feet
