Red Oak Registration Board

oak registration board, originally uploaded by pejnolan.

I was hoping to get my iMcClains order on Friday so I could print all weekend, but alas, it did not arrive. So, instead I decided to make my own registration board in anticipation of doing multiple blocks. I went out to Lowe's and purchased some clear red oak.

This is going to be much heavier than a purchased plywood one, plus it will last a lifetime. I thought that the extra weight would mean less movement while printing.

After it is all glued together, I thought I would tack the ends with brads and then sand the entire piece so that there are no hard edges to crease or emboss the washi.
