« Part 4: Two Outta Three Ain't Bad Part 5 of Clipboard series no next part

Last part. Varnish dry. Time to position and fit the clip. First decide which end to mount the clip

Flip it over horizontally

Tape where the mounting holes for the clip will go

Now you can turn it around without fear of getting the wrong end and mark up for the holes

Cut holes and secure clip

I used some bolts and nuts fitted with shakeproof washers I had left over from my computer installation days.
Eh voila!

The final pics will be posted as a project, shortly. Thank you all for your attention and supportive comments throughout this blog. Its been one of the least stressful I’ve ever done.

Be seeing you.

As tempting as making a clipboard is, I have this gut feeling that it IS a whole lot more complicated (to do well) than it looks.

That’s beautiful.

You always look like you know what you’re doing when you walk around with a clip board. People are going to think you are the CEO with this one! Great Job Martyn!
