"Frankenstein" was pieced together from 5 pieces of wood in a frustrating month long effort, which I almost gave up on several times. In fact, you guys urged me to finish it, and now, it's a-liiiiiiiive. Frank started as a 4 piece Home Depot floorboard sampler glued together in a staggered fashion. The top 2 pieces are wood flooring samples, wooven bamboo tigerstripe and red oak. The bottom 2 were Pergo laminate flooring. I hated the way the Laminate back was looking so I sanded it flat so all that remained was the wood composite core, which is actually very solid. Then I glued a piece of oak plywood that was in my garage, and shaped it into a palm swell. It's not perfect, it's kinda ugly, but I learned a lot, and it shoots pretty good. Thanks for checking it out and the encouragement to finish it. My next one will definitely be a natural but I've picked up some great wood flooring samples for accents, we'll see what the wood wants. PS my attention starved cat kept trying to get in my SS pictures so I included one with her in it to make her happy, haha. HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone!
