I made this blackboard from some pieces of walnut and maple with a piece of plywood as the board.I used pocket holes to join it together and rebated the back the accept to the blackboard.I used magnetic blackboard paint so the kids can use the magnetic letters on it as well as chalk.I routed the inside edge with a roundover bit and used the ogee bit on the outside.I also used the router to make a little trayed area to hold the chalk.I finished the project with spray polyurethane.
