Like the title says another wood strip project run. I’m pretty burned out with wood strip projects. This is the latest I’ve come up with to use up leftovers. I’ve got enough for 7 more clip boards. Hopefully, this will be the end of wood strips.
I made different sizes for various different size notepads. Nothing to complicated here. I’ve made at least a dozen of these. They seem to go over well as gifts.

Those are nice Bob! Sure are pretty. Must be heavy duty also. How thick are they when finished?

Consider how much better you are doing rips, wood prep, and glue ups than when you started….
