Original dimension, 3/4×3 1/2×36 with a nice warp and twist. Glued, ripped in three, stained the middle chunk and reglued. Sprayed w poly, should get a sanding and another coat but seeing as I am out of time, it’s what I got.

Didn’t think I would do this since i was on travel all week, but thought this up and had an hour this morning. A fun project, even though the other entries blow it out of the water.

As Woody Allen remarked “Eighty percent of success is just showing up”.
Good impromptu entry, my cannons are quiet.
