Arch-Top Headboard

Update your bedroom in a big way with a traditional hardwood headboard. It's a classic design with surprisingly simple construction.

There's so much to like about this headboard — its arched rail and molding, the curved panels, and the sturdy posts. But what I really get excited about is how it's built. Even though the headboard looks traditional, it's not your typical construction. There are no mortise and tenon joints to cut and no dovetails to rout. And the assembly of the frame and posts is done in small steps.
