This summer, my wife and I each signed up for two Reddit Gifts exchanges. We both did the “Arbitrary Day” (basically Christmas in July), and I did the DIY exchange while she did the Broadway exchange. After seeing our matches’ preferences, we quickly decided to use the GF for all four gifts. Each is a separate project, so they will be in different threads.
Arbitrary Day - Texas Corkboard
Sierra’s arbitrary day match didn’t have much information to go off of, so she took what we did know (ans what she could find by snooping around the internet) and worked with that. We new they were from Texas, and their anniversary was approaching.
We decided to do a hanging corkboard in the shape of Texas, with stars around the border and twine to hang it by. The back piece is maple ply, and the border piece is a layer of MDF and a layer of maple ply on top. The cork was a sheet from Michael’s, and the whole thing has a grey weathered wood stain.
