Hello everyone,

I recently received a bed which doesn't have a headboard, having only a little experience with wood working but an active interest I figured I'd build a headboard for it. I went looking on the net and was having a really hard time finding any worthwile sites centered around woodworking and no information on building a headboard. I am sure the basic design isn't hard to figure out and accomplish but I am wondering if anyone else has built one or something similar, and if they have any suggestions or pointers.

If anyone knows of any good woodworking sites or any recommendations as to where I can learn more, please let me know.

Thanks.

Look up doing a head board that mounts to the wall.

AOM has a woodworking subgroup, you can try there, and if you have any more questions, that's the place to go.

There are thousands of woodworking websites out there. Keep looking, and perhaps you'll find something. In the meantime, there's a few articles from one website.

Thanks alot, you found exactly what I was looking for. I guess I might have been putting in the wrong key words when searching google.
