Headboards Single Piece Construction
The simplest type of headboard construction involves just a single piece of plywood as the frame. This is called a "Single Piece Construction". These type of headboards are attached to the wall and can be made with or without legs. These legs would be cut from the same plywood as a part of the shape (just one unit). They cannot support the headboard. When used, they are for appearances only (from a side view). Patterns 9322 and 9323 give instructions for headboards with legs that can attach to the bed frame. Those patterns also give different types of headboard construction. The wall mounted headboard can install the same way you would hang a heavy mirror or you can make a "French Cleat" from 1"x4" lumber (instructions are included). This allows the installation to be very easy. The two arch style patterns (in this package) will fit the bed sizes shown below. Slight alterations can be achieved. The instructions can be used for any shape, as long as it is a single piece construction.
