Recently, I have been sucked into another hobby to my wifes displeasure! I met up with an old friend who I used to race HO scale slot cars with when we were kids. He told me he has a large 1/32” scale slot car setup in his basement and he has a small racing club that meets once a week and races. Well, being the over sized kid I am all it took was one visit and I was hooked! We have several classes of cars we race ( LeMans, Corvette, Muscle Car, NASCAR) and there is allot of information that gets recorded about the races. Now it’s just scribbled on a piece of paper. I remembered I had a large piece of white board I salvaged from another project and a quick trip to the lumberyard cut off bin yielded some great pieces of walnut with a 3/8” edge already milled in them for 3 bucks a piece! So I came up with this design….I wanted to keep it simple..its not fine furniture!
I am adding a small cove just to give it a little something. I was thinking of doing some maple keys or stripes but again I want to keep it simple and easy to put together. I just have to rip the pieces down, mill the cove miter and assemble.
Here is some details on the eraser tray…
Here is a cross section of the profile..
I am thinking probubly a wipe on all in one finish…anyone have any suggestiuons for a wipe on for walnut?
