Had 2 hours to kill during my daughter’s volleyball practice so one of the VB moms says she is going shopping. I volunteered go along because I knew there was an adult beverage dispenser (tavern) next to the store but that’s another story all together.
We’re browsing about when she picks up the inspiration for my project and says, hmmm $79.00, that’s not bad.
I almost choked and convinced her to put it back.
I went home and laminated two scraps of 2X6 construction lumber. After drawing up the outline I added a couple of rustic ‘character’ features by drilling and tightening a lag bolt, hit it a time or two with a drywall hammer and a 10 penny nail. I cut two separate pieces on the bandsaw then refined the shape on the oscillating belt sander. Glued the pieces together, hit it with a propane torch and some colored wax….
79 dollars my a$$ haha
