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.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
