Texas Pecan Headboard and night tables

Live edge Texas Pecan headboard with cantilevered nightstands for my neighbors. Some fun along the way included Berdoll Sawmill pulling out 30 bullets from the wood, so I polished up the biggest three and put them back in before doing the epoxy work. The client LOVED it, and has made up some good Texas Ranger stories to tell about this piece. Many thanks to Andrew Miller for his help and guidance along the way, and to Dennis Fagan for the beautiful photos after installation. Pretty happy with this piece. (The slightly stripey appearance is due to the overhead lighting)

Very cool Cindy, a super choice of wood and a true one-of-a-kind headboard, I like the added Bow ties too.
