Intro: Magnet Board for Mother's Day.
So Mother’s Day is coming up and my wife had a good idea. Make my mom a Magnet Board.
1. Found some old cabinet doors to use.
2. Something metal, I used galvanized sheet metal
3. Some trim
6. Clamps will help
I made this at TechShop www.techshop.ws
Step 1: Prep
I prepped the wood by giving it a base coat.
Then I cut the trim pieces to the size I wanted with a compound miter saw.
I also cut the metal into the 2 pieces I needed using the vertical bandsaw. I used the disk sander to take off the rough edges.
Step 2: Mocked Up
I then mocked everything up.
Step 3: Glue and Clamp
I used liquid nail for gluing the metal down and wood glue for the trim.
I used some deep clamps to lightly hold the pieces.
Step 4: Finishing Touches
Before adding some old drawer knobs, it got a fresh coat of paint.
*note I did not add the measurments or paint as they are variables.
