Default Beech and Polycarbonate SPS

Hey guys! Here is something different from me. A while back, I received an aluminum SPS frame in a trade. I haven't used it yet, but did use it as a template for a polycarbonate core for this frame. I used some beech from a pallet I found at work as scales and added some ally pins to help secure the whole thing a bit better. Actually, all the materials came from where I work. Lol. I gave it a blo finish and waxed it as well with paste wax. Thanks for looking!

Thanks! Yup! A pallet! Honestly, it wasn't scrap until after I was finished with it.
