How to:

  1. Add 2 pocket holes to each end of your 19″ boards
  2. Assemble the frame with wood glue and pocket hole screws.
  3. Stain and or paint your frame.
  4. Paint your plywood with chalkboard paint.
  5. Secure plywood to back of frame with wood screws.

  8. If making a calendar, I suggest using a paint pen (not chalk) to create your lines.
