  • Headboard

    Here is something a little different. I had to replace a bed at a beach cottage and needed to make a new headboard. As it was not important I just threw something together out of MDF. After I had finished I realised that I had something that was crying out for embellishment. My initial thought was to perhaps set a piece of fretwork into it. Maybe a tiger on my side and a rose on the other. However as my scroll saw was very sick at the time with tension problems (now fixed) it would have been too tedious to overcome the problem with every cut.
    I therefore decided to make a simple design and embed sand and shells from the beach with polyester resin to make a feature. The result was not brilliant but was only intended as an experiment. I learned a lot from the exercise.

    Looks pretty nice for a beach motif.
