The video covers chalkboard and whiteboard materials, and shows how to make a frame for the chalkboard, including adding splines to the miter joints to strengthen. The materials used in this project include white oak for the frame, walnut for the splines, and a sheet of chalkboard melamine.

Toy Chest Build #2: Making the curves and glue up of the panels

07-07-2016 09:24 PM by 7Footer | 3 comments » Part 1: Thanks for watching, I hope you like it! Disclaimer: I’m not sure but I’d imagine there will be some Safety Sally comments about the placement of my stop when I’m cutting the tongues. Please trust me, I’m comfortable and know the limits of my saw and I respect it, in this situation it was acceptable because I was taking off such a small amount of material

Jimi"s Chalkboard

04-20-2016 01:24 PM by ShogunJimi | 0 comments »

Recently, I built a rather large storage unit for my workshop. Once it was built I noticed that there was a big face that could be used as a back drop for my You-Tube videos. I had several ideas but a chalkboard won the day. Now it can be used to draw diagrams, write comments or anything that is interesting. Here is the link to my You-Tube video, ( The material list: One – sheet of plywood (cut to size) One – sheet of OSB (cut to size an...

The Roof on our Apartment building sustained a little damage this past Winter. After the snow melted, I found the remains of two Slate shingles, out of the hundreds that are up there… The one in the front didn’t survive the fall, but the one in the back put me of a mind to make something, if I can only square it up a little…Back in my landscaping days, in the late “70’s, we cut tons of Granite for Walkways and Stairs. It’s a lot of work, but relatively e...

Good week for struggles and not-quite-there-yets in the woodshop this week. Three projects left the floor complete. The first, chalkboard that has been wind-blown, vandalized and otherwise destroyed three times. We’ll see if it sticks this time. Here’s the link to the photo- for some reason the picture loader isn’t working…. The other two projects I failed to take a picture of. On Mon or Tues, I’ll put up a picture of those two projects. spent a majority of my t...

Countdown to.... (the prototype)

11-05-2009 03:20 AM by clieb91 | 5 comments »

Ok so this is a quick glance at how my (and sometimes my wife’s mind works)... We were looking at the clearance halloween merchandise and I bought a countdown timer to use next year. When we got home we were talking about the timer and if there might be other uses for it. We are taking a vacation in the upcoming months and thought it would be cool if we could count down for it to help get our daughter excited. Decided to make a new timer using the halloween one. But kept talking ...

Making Chalkboards

07-27-2008 03:59 PM by Eric | 4 comments »

This weekend my family went with a fellow church member to a sister congregation located among one of the minority indigenous communities. Our purpose was to provide them with a couple chalkboards – one for the sanctuary and one for the Sunday school room. I brought all the tools and the chalkboard paint, and our friend arranged for the plywood to be delivered. The first step was to cut the sheets down a bit. I didn’t have enough paint for two 4×8 sheets, so I cut them bot...

Thorsen Table contest #9: where there's a Lumberjock, there's a way...

I decided that I was going to finish the table yesterday. As I eluded to in my shop tour, the top is slate, specifically a piece of an old school chalkboard. (I have 4 or 5 large pieces courtesy of my grandfather). Months ago I hung up a 2x3 (ish) piece in the kitchen with a couple screws, it drilled really easy and cleanly. I expected to be able to cut this with my jigsaw, but I meant to pick up (or look for) something else - just in case, when I was out getting a few things at the Bi...
