The Running Board

I generally end up doing some kind of project around Christmas time and this year was no different.  My brother and I decided a board that Gary, our brother in law, could hang his running items on would be useful.  I volunteered to make one after we couldn’t find a decent one online.

It wasn’t really that hard, just a little time involved.

I took a piece of pine, painted it green (because I already had that paint), painted a silhouetted runner on it, sealed it with a clear lacquer, put a few hooks in for medals, race bibs and ribbons and bingo, done! A couple of pieces of dowel allow more medals to be displayed, with a chain either end so you can hook more on. Bulldog clips complete the package and allow you to clip a heap of ribbons or race bibs together, then they hang on the board.

Gary loved it, so hopefully it hangs inside his house, not in the shed!
