Center Board Rails

These rails will protect the center board box.

These 1 rails will be bolted down after they are clear coated. Simply with 4 brass screws each. This way they can be removed if they get too scratched up from the center board handle or level pin.

The old bench provided enough mahogany to create both. They are 3/4 x 3/4 inch

Rounded on 2 sides and just slightly more narrow than the sides of the center board box.
