I made this Board today for my Dad for Fathers Day. Being he lives alone in the country on his small ranch I did not want it to be girllish. I used epoxy with rock to fill the knot hole and the worm holes. The wood is Walnut and redwood and maple. Its 15 3/4” long and 12” at its wides point. I also made the stands to match the board.
Thanks Dennis

I really like this. The use of stands for it is great, too. It can be on display instead of stuck down in a cabinet somewhere.
Like harry… wondering about the clamping.

This CB is as manly as it can get. Pass me a beer and throw those steaks on the grill.

Sorry for not responding faster to the questions I was at a show in Tahoe. I had to put screws infront of the edge to clap it together. I use a piece of wood screwed to my table before I clamp.
