I love all colors of rich wood...that God has given us and always like to incorporate various wood colors in my projects. Unfortunately exotic colored wood is very expensive and sometimes hard to come by.
Therefore I'm really grateful for wood stains!
Here is a easy as can get slat mat. If you do an online search you would find many slat mats with colors and almost all are drilled.
This is so simple it is just right for a beginners project

Step 1: Materials

Sheet of rubber
wooden slats cut to equal lengths ( mine is 20" x 1"  x 3/4")
Wood preservative
wood stain ( oil or water based)
clear polythene varnish
These are so cool! I want to rent a bunch of these to decorate for a corporate party we're going to be having soon. Do you know of a place that does <a href="http://www.cityclean.ca/products.php" rel="nofollow">mat rental</a> where I could get something like this? Thanks!
