Let's Get Started
To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.
First, cut the MDF with your Saw-Max™ and wood and plastic cutting wheel to size. We made ours to accommodate the yardstick graphics.
After that, cut the yardstick to desired lengths as shown on the image. Ours are 13" and 4 1/2".
Cut slots with the Dremel 4000 and 543 Cutting/Shaping Wheel to measure approximately 3/8" deep into the long-sided edge of your MDF, spaced evenly.
Paint the MDF with chalkboard paint.
Once the paint is dry, glue the binder clips into the slots you cut in Step 3.
Then, glue on the cut pieces of the yardstick to your chalkboard piece, and let dry. Lastly, secure picture hangers to the back of the chalkboard and hang onto the wall.
