When we were getting ready for the baby, we moved our bed. However, there was nothing to lean against. Reading before going to sleep was uncomfortable.
The most interesting part of making this was figuring out how to make a straight grove in the round cherry branch to insert the cedar boards. I put the branch on a flat table and used a router to carve out the grove. It worked better than I thought it would.
It is very sturdy and it smells nice, too. It has been very useful.
