About 3 months ago my wife handed me a small chalkboard and “asked” me to make a frame for it. After crossing some other things off the honey-do list (roto-tilling her new garden, making a small box for her oils, etc.), much contemplation, and the determination to get all projects finished by June, this is what I came up with.
The board is held in using dado cuts on the vertical pieces, and the vertical pieces are connected to horizontal pieces using glue & dowel rods for reinforcement. A little work on the router produced the piece to hold the chalk, and a few minutes with a torch produced the burned look.
“Sole Sanctuary” is going to be the new name of her massage business, which is a pun (not misspelling) due to the fact that she mainly uses her feet to massage.
Overall dimensions are 12” wide by 16” Tall. All wood is oak (mainly from the scrap bin), torched, and finished with 3 coats of wipe-on poly.
Thanks for looking, Comments/suggestions welcome!
