In the middle of all the negative comments I got from posting something on Reddit, some guy commented with “You should make sandwich boards.” I thought I’d give it a shot. I had a nice 20” long piece of maple sitting around already planed and ready to go. I cut four 5/8” strips from it. Then cut three 1/4” pieces of bloodwood and two 1/4” pieces of purpleheart. I glued up the alternating bloodwood and purpleheart and let it set up overnight (for no other reason than being tired). When I got home from work I glued it all together…. waited a couple hours, planed it down a little, sanded, trimmed corners, sanded some more, and then finished with mineral oil and wax.
Wicked easy project and cute too!
