Arched Headboard

A bed's headboard not only adds to the beauty of the bed but also sets the style of the bedroom. The correct headboard can make a dull bedroom come alive and it's not that difficult to build.

This headboard has an arched rail and molding, curved panels, and sturdy posts that make it an absolutely beautiful piece. Even though the headboard looks traditional, it's not your typical case construction. No mortise and tenon joints to cut. No dovetails to rout. Just some rabbets, a few grooves and splines, and three solid-wood panels. Even the assembly of the frame and posts is done in small steps. The cutting diagrams and materials list are available to download.

Build a headboard that will be used in the family for many years to come.
