Gabe’s Dad, Tony, is a basketball coach. So he often has a clipboard. This is what Gabe is about to give his Dad for Father’s Day…
Front… Normal clipboard that will hold many papers.
It comes with a dowel in the clip.
Back… Pure love.
That hole in the bottom is where the dowel goes which allows it to stand upright.
The wood appears to be 1/3" crapboard (that’s a thing, right?). And because I tested the engrave on scrap a few times unmasked… I completely forgot to mask the real piece. What a tool I am. Also I think I could have gone a shade lighter, but everybody’s happy with it as-is, so I guess I’m not re-doing it.
