This naturally-finished Honduras mahogany headboard was also made for a full sized bed. Taco's design was modified to produce a headboard that could be disassembled for shipping and of course assembled with no glue. As a result the lightness was replaced by a more massive look. The styles are 1 1/2" thick and the rails remain 1" thick. The spindles also remain 1 1/4" wide by 3/4" thick. The overall height is 47" and the overall width is 54 3/4"

The additional style thickness allowed space for assembly hardware accessible from the back There were two matching headboards made and were mounted on metal bed frames. However, this design could be converted into a bed with wooden rails and a footboard and made in a queen or king size.

Walnut headboard for king size bed with random width boards and raised dividers This headboard is made for a king size bed to match the style of a nearby dresser also made from black walnut. The panel is 18" high by 74" wide and has a 5" bow in the center. The bow was achieved by gluing the walnut solid wood to a plywood backing. The solid wood shrinks over time in a dry climate, but the plywood doesn't and pulls the back into a gentle curve.
