Introduction: Chalk Board

Picture of Chalk Board

My daughter needed something to aid her with her constantly changing university work deadlines.
So I went old school, with a chalk board.

Step 1: The Size

The size was determined by the amount of Dado rail I had as a frame for the board.

Step 2: The Board

The board was bought from a recycle yard, as I didn't have anything suitable.
It's 1/4 thick
I cut it to 17" wide and 34" long.

Step 3: The Finnish

The Dado boarder covers the top and both sides,
the bottom edge has a shelf for chalk.
the board was hung with hooks and wire.

Step 4: The End

The board was given an undercoat, then painted black with the dado painted white.
Works well and helps organize the Uni work.
