Fur Boards decked out for Christmas

The 3 triangular shaped pieces are old fur boards.
They were used for stretching pelts.
I love the shape and patina of them,

I'd much rather paint on old wood than new.
The character of the old wood brought on by the passing of time
is something we can try to recreate, but it's just not the same.
