Step 1:

If you've got access to a laser cutter, you can customize the attached template "board art.svg" for your boards. The template is setup for a 12x20" sized piece of material. I used a Glowforge laser cutter on 1/8" thick plywood. I also used the 3m dual lock tape to secure the boards to the plywood in the event I need to use one of the boards.
