Here is the headboard stained and glued up.  The post caps are just sitting there at this point.  I can't glue those on until the final top piece is in place.  It will slide over the post tops.  The piece that is clamped on top was cut from two solid boards.  It is not laminated or steam bent.  They are joined in the middle with splines.
