I was shown a picture and asked if I could design a headboard that would match the light birch wood look of the rest of the bedroom furniture. The catalog photo I was shown is below. It was discontinued.
The customer furnished the bars after we worked out the details. The frame of the headboard is Birch, 1.5 inches thick and the panel is 1/2-inch Baltic Birch furniture grade plywood. I had to learn a new process working on this project called pickling. It is a process to lighten the color of the lumber rather than stain it. The results can be seen below. The end cost of this project was approximately $950.00.
