Recycled Wood Headboard

A big advantage of being good with your hands is the ability to personalize your space. Put your talents to action to build a double headboard out of recycled wood. See the plan for plank dimensions and the assembly instructions.


Assembling the support

  • 1.1 - Measure and cut the sheet of plywood as to have a 36" x 60" piece. Place it on the ground to ease the build.
  • 1.2 - Measure and cut 2 – 1" x 3" x 8' at 55".
  • 1.3 - Measure and cut 2 – 1" x 3" x 8' at 54".
  • 1.4 - Secure the 2 – 54" planks on either side of the plywood, and the 2 – 55" planks at the top and bottom of the sheet.

2. Assembling the panels

  • 2.1 - Secure the first row of panels, making sure to cover the wood from the support structure.
  • 2.2 - Secure each row, alternating the lengths of the panels to avoid matching joints.
