My cousin brought over a large trash bag old redwood planks wondering if I can find use for them (this was expecially thoughtful because he lives 3 hours away and was driving tough town to see his parents and didn’t have to think about me) so since he and his wife just had a child and apparently I’m making a name for myself as the growth chart guy I decided why not. So I cut these pieces out individually like an oversized intarsia and glued them to a backboard, alot softer of wood then I’m used to and being preweathered I’m sure didn’t help, so I had ever issue I think possible but the end result turned out ok

Great and very challenging project. I made puzzle framed magnetic/chalk board so I know how much work there is with it.

Very neat. Like the puzzle pieces with differing wood types.
