On the same day I got my new dovetail jig, my youngest daughter said that she couldn’t wash the dishes since she couldn’t reach. So I grabbed a salvage board, planed it down and after the day was over, she had to wash her own dishes. I tried to make it look like an antique.

Great Job. What is the wood and what is the size of it.

The wood is a somewhat unknown. When I purchased this house, I found some old planks in a shed.
