Ken’s Hickory Headboard

I had to kill a piano that came with my house. The piano was old and damaged and stuck in the basement. In dismantling it, I was taken by the big chunky supports made from hickory. So, needing a new headboard, I took some lead from Marc’s bed frame build and bought some more hickory and walnut. I finally found the time to shape it all and join it with dowels and routed the walnut panels into the frame!
In tribute to the origins of the uprights, I left plugged holes visible (well only visible if you get up close to the side!)
