Thread: Maple headboard

  1. #1

    Maple headboard

    I actually built this a while ago. Itís wormy maple (ambrosia maple to some). The frame is 8/4 and the rest is 4/4. I put a dado in the frame and the backboard just floats inside. I jammed some pieces of foam in the back of the dado to prevent the backboard from making noise. I routed some grooves in the top board and added led strip lights for reading.


    I bought a thin touch pad that acts as the on/off switch and it also dims. I used picked holes to attach the top piece for easy removal if I ever have a problem with the lights. The finish is 4 coats of waterlox

    It looks good. I like the lights. Are they individually controlled? What are picked holes??

    Probably meant pocket holes.

    oops, yes 'pocket holes' not picked holes. Stupid auto correct. They are individually controlled. Each side has it's own on/off switch
