Every wonder how to make an arched headboard?
Big furniture manufacturers use CNC machine routers to cut out arched panels in minutes. They can mass produce beds with arched panels quickly and inexpensively because a machine does the cutting.
Custom furniture makers do not have it so easy. Each step of the process is tedious and must be done with precision.
Shane Rodarte, professional furniture maker in Houston, Texas, created a video demonstrating how he uses a hand-held router, jig saw, belt sander and orbital sander, to create a mahogany raised-panel arched headboard. He warns that his method is for experienced woodworkers only. In other words, don’t try this at home.
