I had a customer who had a house on the lake. She wanted something “boaty” to serve drinks on. I had a couple of boat cleats laying around and this is what I came up with. Those aren’t the old cleats I had, I bought some better looking ones.

It is made of poplar. It has a good coat of primer then two coats of red paint. I distressed it with steel wool and 600 grit sandpaper. And I also rubbed it with some old leather to ease the distressing.
