My oldest daughter's birthday was last week. She and I have run 10Ks together, and I knew that she wanted some way to display her bibs and finisher medals. I wanted to give her a display board as a present. I wasn't thrilled with the ones I found, so I decided to make one.
I purchased a piece of wood from Lowe's. Ignoring the signs in the store that ominously warned that wood dust is a known carcinogen, I took a risk and routered the edges of the wood, and drilled holes for the hardware. I did the lettering with a stencil and a Sharpie marker. The bibs are hung on book rings on eye hooks, and the medals are hung from cupboard knobs.
I used some of my medals and bibs for the photo, then took them off so I could send my daughter her present. Maybe I'll need to make another display board for my bling!
Thanks for John, for tutoring me on the use of power tools, and for my daughter, for being a great running buddy.
