  2. Primitive Chalkboard made from Upcycled raised door panel

    This primitive chalkboard, key garage, coat rack is made from an antique door panel. The robin's egg blue paint that you see is original paint. I just uncovered it with the belt sander then put on 3+ coats of tung oil. This door panel came from .. the… dumpster. I have made a sister to this...
  3. Two sided blackboard easel

    I made this chalkboard easel using three 1×3 8-foot dimensional pine boards, along with 1/4 inch luan plywood which is very smooth. Then I painted the plywood with primer and two coats of blackboard paint. The pine makes it lighter and more easy to carry. It is 4 feet high by 2 feet wide...
  4. Chalkboards

    My wife decided she needed one of those stand up A-frame type chalkboards to write messages when she was at art shows. So, I went to Home Depot and got one of those $10 2ft X 4ft chalkboard panels, and I already had a 10' 1×6 of #1 SYP. Put this together fairly quickly. Normally I would use...

  7. Sideways Chalkboard Murphy Bed | Custom

    This is a bed that was completed in February 2010. It is a murphy bed turned sideways with a chalkboard and a wide bookcase. I've build a sideways chalkboard bed before but not with the desk style bookcase on the end. The problem with the horizontal murphy wall beds is unless you place it in...
  8. Steak Out Saloon chalk board and eraser

    I made this chalkboard for my client "The Steakout Saloon" here in Fort Collins Colorado. This will be used in the basement shuffleboard area. They wanted it really strong so I made it from hickory and pocket holed the frame and used epoxy to hold everything together. You could probably stand on...
  9. chalkboard

    Bought a cheap chalkboard from Amazon. I was not impressed with the mitered oak frame, it was already coming apart, so I made this. Mostly maple with a dye stain. It is based on a mirror project in PW. Of course, now I realize that the chalkboard surface itself is junk, so I am ordering a...
  10. Kids Table

    My son loves playing with cars and tractors, and will find any available table space to play with them all day long. So of course Dad had to build him a table of his own. I incorporated chalkboard paint for the top so he can draw his own roads/fields/cities while he plays also. Nothing fancy on...
  11. Easel/Chalkboard

    I built this for my eight-year old granddaughter. It's an easel that has a blackboard on the back and a double-sided white dry-erase board that pulls down from the front. I included two drawers for her to store markers and chalk. The project is made from poplar. It's 34" wide by 48" high by...
  12. Wooden Growth Chart/ Ruler

    Built this growth chart/ ruler using my xcarve CNC machine. Used genuine reclaimed barn wood and new poplar with chalkboard paint to make it. Hangs easily on a wall and can be moved from house to house. The barnwood is stained with a walnut stain and wiped off almost immediately. I do this so...
  13. Blackboards at the strawberry stand

    These are small blackboards with mortise and tenon joinery, in pine. The boards are 11×14 plus a 2.5 inch frame. I also made much larger black boards to hang on the wall, without frames, to list the price of the strawberries.
  14. Easel Chalkboard

    This is my very first wood project ever. I've wanted to get into woodworking for a long time and was finally able to buy a few tools. I based this off of the plans here: http://ana-white.com/2010/11/plans/schoolhouse-chalkboard. I finished this last night and this morning my daughter used it...
  15. Easy lightweight blackboard easel

    My other easels were bigger, more complex and heavier. This one is lightweight and simple to make. I glued the legs to the board, then used jute instead of hinges. It is made from cedar and 1/4 inch plywood. 4 ft tall, the boards are 18" x 24", and the legs are 1×2.
  16. Chalkboard Built-in Murphy bed | Custom

    This is a murphy wall bed that was completed in March 2011. It was one that had to have a lot of pre-planning. The customer, which is located out of state, wanted it built in. It was a not so typical configuration on the layout. The ceiling had a 45 degree turn about 7" down. We also had to...
  17. Christmas gift for Wife - Breakfast in Bed Chalkboard Tray

    My wife told me for Christmas this year, she wanted something I could make with the kids. Since they are both under 4 years old, I felt limited and stumped, until I came up with this idea; a breakfast-in-bed serving tray. For the base I used a chalkboard panel I picked up at the local...
  18. Chalkboard Murphy Bed | Custom

    This is a Murphy bed that was built as a request from a customer. It has a chalkboard front and pegboard sides. The front is basically my normal Alpine style with some chalkboard paint and a tray for the chalk. When building the pegboard side I just enclosed the peg board in a frame, similar...
  19. Chalkboard for Kids Room

    Made this chalkboard for our two boys' playroom (ages 4 and 6). Fun and easy. Took some sanded 1/2" ply, ripped strips from it, shaped them with a jigsaw and bandsaw and that was about it. I primed and painted and then sanded through in a few spots to let the white primer show through to give...
  20. Hanging ChalkBoard

    Browsing in some magazines I came across the concept of a blackboard. The picture that I saw had one embedding into a door. I thought long and hard about tearing up a door and then mounting a chalkboard inside. It seemed like a lot of work and something that could go terribly wrong, so I came...
