here is my latest Grandpa project. It is a chalkboard on one side, and a magnetic dry eraser board on the other, in the middle is a 1000ft roll of paper that can be pulled up and over the top to one side and used for draing and coloring those precious ‘refrigerator’ pictures. This was a very simple project, but will certainly gives thousands of hours of fun. Along with all the chalk and colors, I also included a bunch of magnetic letters she can use to arrange for her pleasure. Thanks for looking.

I’ve been looking at making one of these. Where did you find the dry erase board and the roll of paper? Is the chalkboard just chalkboard paint? Looks great.

The dry erase board/also magnetic was bought at Wal-mart, around $7, the chalkboard is just luan Plywood with 2 coats of chalkboard paint also bought at Wal-mart. The roll of paper was a 1000’ roll purchased online from Schoolhouse Supply.

Thanks Ted. I’m going to have to make one now, I saw this a few years ago in a WOOD Magazine and have always wanted to make one for my little brother that likes to draw.
