This is my first post on lumberjocks so i hope it comes out correct. I made this headboard as a birthday present for my wife. Walmut, cherry, alder and maple strips with a plywood backer. lots of cutting, gluing, and pin nailing but the final results were worth the time.

Looks nice. It does appear to be a lot of cutting, gluing, nailing, etc. Welcome to LJ’s.
