Oak Penny Hockey Board

One of my best selling toys is the Penny Hockey Board, or Penny Soccer Board, which is the same thing but painted differently. This is an old-school toy that many of us made as youths, perhaps in middle school woodshop, and the toy I sell is the same thing - simple construction, hardboard and pine, made for fun and play. I had a customer who wanted something more high quality, and asked if I could make one from Oak. Well, why make one when you can make TWO... The picture above shows the result.

The corners are mitered, and keyed with purpleheart in this case, though any contrasting wood would do. The project is stained (natural oil in this case) and finished with shellac for a high-gloss finish that can be easily touched up. It's sturdy, strong, and heirloom quality. SO of course it costs a little more than the less expensive boards. Size 12"x16", price $100 finished, $70 unfinished.
