Chalkboard lost & found

Build a message board for your laundry room with clips to hold onto anything "lost and found".

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.
