My warp board is made from broom handles. What is yours made from?

I decided to do 11 yards this time around so I will have some extra bookmarks.  I want to send a few extras to the school that ordered these, for just in case I miscounted.  I also want a few extras for myself, and I know my mom wants some for her Christmas cards this year.

Did I ever tell you my dad helped me make this warp board?  And did I ever tell you that he used broom handles for some of the pieces?  He had collected about a dozen broom handles from dumpsters throughout the last 10 or 15 years.  At first, I was skeptical.  But, the wood was beautiful, once we started working with it. 

It's hard to imagine them as brooms!
