My reproduction of an early draughts board, in a layered putty colour on faded black.
Made the same as the original, with missing front cleat, two split boards that have slightly shifted out of square, and applied trim attached with old square cut nails.
A large, hefty board at about 35 x 20 inches.

Large reproduction "Cordonnerie" sign, about 40"wide x 30"tall.
The original of this sign was lettered in gold. (...of which I'm not a fan.) My version has the text in a warm taupe/straw colour, (which doesn't come across in this photo) on a hand-burnished black background, with "remnants" of trim and rusted tacks.
