Cutting Board Backdrop for Fly Vise

Ok I have made several back drops for my fly tying vise from trash and junk. Here's a new take on the back drop idea. I was in a small junk shop (Daily Deal) in the near by town of Marshall, NC. I spotted these little cutting board for a $1.50 a piece. The light went off. At those prices you couldn't pass them up?

Here's where I went. Take the two boards and fabricate a hing and lock.

Two 1/4-20 Eye Bolts, 1/4-20 Stove Bolt, Thumb screw and some assorted washer for spacer and alignment.

This is what you wind up with. A white back drop and a white work surface below the vise as well.

Feedback and opinions are welcome.

Dedicated to my son. I love you.
