In-Progress: A Modern Reclaimed Headboard

This in-progress piece is very slick and more modern looking. It’s seen here after being assembled, without any finishing or conditioning. I’m thinking a layer of shellac/denatured alcohol, then maybe a pigmented stain or tung oil – keeping it more natural looking. Stayed tuned!

I had a stack of smaller pallets, all with the same sized slats. After disassembling them, I joined the edges so they would fit together more seamlessly.
