Actually, that’s not quite true… it did end up in the garbage.
I’m always seeing boards like this showing up out here, so in a “but mom, everyone’s doing it!” moment, I decided to make one myself. I knew how I wanted the pattern, I had some extra wood laying around and a song in my heart… so I went for it.
However, when it came to slicing the the strips out of the first glue up, I was a bit distracted, and cut the pieces quite poorly (to put it lightly)... I tried to square everything back up, but at this point I was already disappointed and didn’t feel like carrying on…
After about a month of my poorly cut posts sitting in the trunk of my car, I said screw it, and glued them together… which was an adventure… Shortly after I took it out of the clamps, I decided it wasn’t worth it, threw it in the garbage, and went home. The next day, I got a text with a picture from John, who works over at the shop, and he had found it and flattened it, and it actually looked kinda nice (there are some gaps in the bottom)... but whatever.
So, Johnly saved it from its smelly fate… and I’m going to let him have it, because he seemed to really dig it.
That’s my moderately long, intensely boring story about this board.
