Another Old door headboard.
Doors in homes built before 1950 are typically made of solid wood, whether oak, maple, chestnut, or mahogany. They’ve got heft, and they make a satisfying thump when you knock. They also have sturdy stiles and rails that frame handsome panels in a variety of configurations, depending on the home’s architectural style.
