My Hubby and I are Grandpa and Nana to 15 grandchildren with 2 more on the way.  We remodeled the living room last summer and we left one wall blank, until we found the perfect way to display pictures of our Grandchildren.  We found what we were looking for at a Craft Boutique, but not at a price we were willing to pay.  It was a photo display board, which my Hubby declared we would make ourselves.  So here is the Instructable on how to create your own Photo Display Board.  So let’s get started, shall we?

Step 1:

Supplies:  (Not everything listed are shown in the picture)
1 sheet 1/2” deep cabinet quality plywood (4ft x 8ft +/- $25)
Table saw
½ inch corner round router bit
½ groove router bit
Air nailer with finish nails
Air compressor
Wood glue (+/- $5, we had left over from other projects)
Tape measure
Black paint (Your local home supply store has 8oz samples of house paint for $3, your color choice)
Sponge brush
Nail set punch
Vinyl words (your choice of words to discribe your boardand color)
Wood filler
Very cute! What a nice way to share and enjoy photos!
You know, the best thing about this project is that you can take a simple project and use it as an excuse to bring out your entire arsenal of power tools. Less experienced would just have glued a piece of lattice edge moulding to a board and call it a day. I guess you could have also spaced it bigger so the channels hold in a strip of plexiglas or glass to flatten out the pictures and not be dependent on getting a specific size picture.<br><br>Grandparents are such an inspiration. <br>
Thank you! We are so glad to have it done. My Hubby loves wood working. Our first Christmas together, he got me a scroll saw. I have to keep reminding him that it's &quot;MINE&quot;. We do have fun working on these projects. The plexiglass is a great idea, just never occurred to us. Thanks for the comment and the suggestion.
