Squared2 Full-size Headboard

Submitted by CSaintD on Sat, 05/30/2015 - 18:20

This is from Ana's Squared2 headboard plans. I made it for my Mom and she loves it. I adjusted the width to fit a full size bed by taking a few inches off each side. I found some right angle clamps at an estate sale that were invaluable in putting all this together. It would be very tricky getting everything just square and lined up with just regular clamps. I was worried about it being a little flimsy with all the small pieces, but it seems pretty sturdy.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
about $50 as I used poplar for the squares.
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
poplar and pine
Finish Used
primed, then painted with gloss white enamel (cabinet paint). This was the worst part of the whole thing. I sanded all the pieces before I put them together, but it still needed some finish sanding before I could prime, then had to sand again after that. I had to do all that sanding by hand as the joins are pretty delicate.
