Default Turned some scrap wood into something useful

I had some scrap wood lying around from a new deck and got the Idea that the pieces would make some good wheel chocks. Thought somebody might find this useful.

Craig-looks like the center line of that one bolt wandered a bit. Did you coat your holes with epoxy?

Dude,
I did it all freehand and marked nothing. Didn't epoxy anything either, it's pressure treated wood and I have 12 more pieces-they should last a lifetime!! Wasn't looking for perfection, just functionality!
