our faithful delivery man ken, delivered and hung this claro walnut headboard in new york city last week. the project has been ongoing for a month or two and it was nice to see it finally in place.
i posted this photo of one of three new slabs i received back in march. this client picked up on it and asked us to make her a headboard from this one.
we did some rough planing, and wet it with some alcohol, and we were on track.
it had some unusual burl like details along the top edge.
we made a quick cad drawing that included some drawer boxes cantilevered off the ends of the slab. they seemed a little much, so they were dropped in the end in favor of the minimalist look in our photoshop mockup below.
all's well that ends well and this one ended very well for our client ...
one of the three slabs from march is still not spoken for ... it's ready to be something anytime ...
