First attempt at a headboard. I picked up multiple pieces of tongue and groove blue pine from the cull bin at our local Home Depot. When my wife asked me to make a headboard for a room we just converted into a bedroom I decided the blue pine would be perfect for the job. The tongue and groove pieces were all 8’ long but I only needed 60” so that allowed me to be selective in my cuts, removing the damaged edges that caused the blue pine to be on the cull cart in the first place. After putting the headboard together, it was sanded and finished with Danish oil and furniture wax…..
