My son tore a 100+ year old barn down over in north Alabama. It was all 13/16” oak. I went over to visit him and he gave me some of the boards. I used it for the main box and put some Zebrawood and Wedge on top of it. Add a mirror, some Wedge splines and wallah.
Finished with 3 coats of Tung oil and a little polish.
Thanks for looking!

Another stellar job on the new box, Duck….nice to see some old salvaged wood used like that….Not too many 100 year old barns left around the country…..Your son did good, and daddy did better….Beautiful work, bud….
Hope your getting in some good fishing time…...

Hard not to like Zebrawood.

Your use of splines both size, space and color work great…...................

Thanks Flatrock. It was kinda nice using old lumber again. Not too many kinds of wood will last that long and be reusable.
Rick, thanks for the cuddos. I’ve been pounding the big redfish over 15 pounds.
Thanks Hillbilly.
Red rider I agree. I turned the grain on this one to highlight the two woods.
