I asked DH to make a headboard for the bed as my Christmas present. I wanted a sunburst design of some sort and this is what he came up with. I think it is beautiful! I'm so lucky to have such a talented husband!

That headboard is super neat! Your DH is a keeper. It's great having such a handy man around the house, isn't it? My DH sounds much like yours. He's made me quilt stands and racks and a pie safe, but never a head board....at least not yet :)!!

Yes, he is definitely a keeper and very handy. The light colored wood is from a sassafras tree from our land and the dark wood is from a walnut tree that a friend gave him. He had a someone with a portable mill cut the trees into lumber. So this is really made from scratch! :)

That's a thought, but I'm taking a class in the Spring to make the pattern (Vintage Moments) and I've bought the fabric, so I guess I'll go with it. Maybe there's a sunburst quilt in the future! lol
