Hey, I can do that. Got my shims. Got my stain. Got my fabric. Got my glue. Got my table runner!
First a tip. Do not and I repeat DO NOT glue said craft together on top of your dining-room table. Even though you are going to be sanding said table soon it will cause you more work. Dang it!
I stained all my shims. I used two different stains. Rust Oleum's Early American and Traditional Cherry. Shims are uneven on each end so I alternated them on the runner 2:1. I wish I would of done 3:1 though.
I then started gluing with Gorilla Glue and presto peasy! An awesome table runner.
