I had removed the shelf boards during a remodel of our upstairs closet and was looking for a small project to re-use these boards. These boards are from the house my wife grew up in. We’re going to be moving and I thought it would be a nice memory to take with us.
After cutting around the knots and laminating, this is what I came up with.

I think that’s a great sentiment and not a bad project either!

Looks super ,I guess the saying is wrong …you can take it with you or at least you can take a little with you when your moving.
