Is there some reason that you want to build vs. buy a premade headboard?

comment How to get rid of gophers in the back yard without poison?
Is there a specific reason you are averse to poison? Do you have specific objection to killing them, or is it just an issue of pets/children/etc?

comment What are cheap ways to build strong shelves with a large span?
I am not aware of any load bearing tables for typical conduit pipes. To get some idea, you can go to the hardware store and check out the conduit there. I would start with maybe 3/4" or 1" galvanized (thickwall) pipe. If you can find a spot in the store, try and prop it up at the ends and see if it will deflect under your weight.

comment Where to find Adapter for E-11 or E-14 to E-26 light socket
I am assuming (because his profile lists Georgia) that he is referring to a standard "medium base" edison socket (e26/e27).

comment How do I find the source of the water leaking through the ceiling?
FYI, back of the envelope suggests that in a 15x15x8 foot room at 60 degrees with 60% RH, you will have approximately 9 ounces of extra water in the air. The dew point at those conditions will be approximately 45 degrees. Any surface in the room which is at or below 45 degrees will collect condensation.
