About: Studying Creative Tech and Psychology at Berry College

Tools:

3D Printer

Table Saw

Drill

Screwdriver(s)

Materials:

(1) 12" x 36" Board

(4) 2" Narrow Utility Hinges & Screws

At least 12" x 12" sheet of felt material

At least 12' x !2' piece of Dry Erase Board

At least 12" x 12" piece of corkboard material

Optional:

3D Design Software

Staple Gun

Scissors

Adhesive Foam

Step 1: Prep

Cut your wood down to 3 (roughly) 12x12 pieces.

If your felt, whiteboard, and/or corkboard is bigger than 12x12, cut them down as well.

I found a pack of 4 6" x 6" cork squares, and so I used those.

Additionally, my whiteboard and cork squares came with pre-cut adhesive foam squares and so I will be using those later to attach certain pieces. to one another.

Step 2: Cork

Attach the corkboard to one of the three pieces of 12x12 you cut previously.

You may use any method that suits your needs, just make sure that the corners of the 12x12 piece of cork match the corners of you 12x12 wood.

I used adhesive foam pieces to attach the 4 6x6 cork pieces next to one another to form a larger 12x12 piece.

Step 3: Dry Erase Board

Using the 12x12 piece of whiteboard, line the corners up the same way you did with the cork.

I again used adhesive foam squares.

Step 4: Felt

Repeat the process for the felt and attach in any way that suits you.

I used a staple gun to attach via the four corners.

Now assemble your three pieces and prepare for the next step.

Step 5: Hinges

Pre-drill holes to attach the hinges via screws to the sides of the board until they come together and can be opened/folded together flat.

Step 6: Optional Step

I had, or could print, a U-shaped holder for a wet/dry erase marker.

I glued this piece between the spaces of the dry erase board an the wooden board it was mounted to have a place to hold a dry erase marker when not in use.

Step 7: Dice Tower

I have linked to the files I originally used to print this dice tower which I used as part of this project.

Once printed, (I painted it black but this is optional) I used two small screws and screwed them into the back of the dice tower at a 45 degree angle to its surface.

This allow me to perch the dice tower over the lip of the corkboard on the panel and so it rests suspended while in use.
