now is the hardest part, to drill the hole you need to go slowly so the shape does not break or split

you can stain the wood to make the grains really pop out,trust me it looks much better. You can also spray clear gloss over the stain for a shiny look. then just put a string through it and wear your necklace!

This is a cool idea. Especially if the board held sentimental value and was busted beyond repair. Thanks for sharing!
