I live with a man that feels it necessary to have a dart board in our living room. When I moved in with him he had the UGLIEST dart board set up and I just couldn't allow that to continue. I told him that if he allowed me to change the backing for the dart board then it could stay. After much contemplation and research I decided that I would make a board covered in slices of wood. I got Art (the man I live with and am about to marry) to start cutting 1 inch thick wood slices. I had no idea I was taking on a massive project. I thought maybe 100 slices of wood would be enough...not even close Art ended up cutting 523 slices. Along the way we ran out of wood so I asked art to cut down a tree (a small one) in our yard, he came back with a tree that was shaped like a heart...totally awesome and wonderfully romantic. Any who as Art cut I stained. I decided that I wanted to have some depth to the board so I chose 4 different stains. Once the slices were dry I started the huge task of making them all fit. It was the hardest puzzle I have ever done! That being said it was COMPLETELY worth it because I love how it turned out!
Thanks for looking!
