Those who might have grown up in the old days might have played on something like these? Only thing is that these are not that old.

After looking at similar styles on Pinterest and other online sites. I came up with my ideas. Each board is made from re-claimed ceder fence pickets. Glued together, clamped and sanded I cut to final size. Using painters tape, acrylic paints I created my designs. lastly I would rough sand to distress as you see. Finally I coat with paste wax.
