For those of you who haven’t read my bio on here I’ll bring you up to speed. My grandfather was the one who first sparked my interest in woodworking at around the age of 5 or so. I spent a lot of time with him in those days as both of my parents were working and he would show me things in his elaborate shop. He passed away back in March of this year at the age of 89. I went into the shop and started to look through his scrap bin and found numerous slim scrap pieces that he had cut over 10 years before and thought I would make something to commemorate him that I would always have.
This board is made from six species of wood they include: Cherry, white oak, red oak, hickory, maple and black walnut. The middle cherry piece was a failed table horizontal brace, it even had holes for dowels in both ends which I plugged.
Let this write up be a lesson to the readers that have children or grandchildren they just might pick your hobby up if you expose them to it.
