This was a project that I was inspired to do based on another LJer’s post of a similar chalkboard.

I made mine out of black walnut. This was my first attempt at doing fluting on columns and the result was very good. I really enjoy the Dewalt compact router and now understand the value of having a smaller router to accompany my full sized router.

Its 39” tall and 25” wide. The joints are all half lap.

I think I’m going to add some key hooks at the bottom and call it complete.

The frame looks fabulous! What a blessing to see this fine work!
