My wife saw this type of growth chart on Pinterest and commissioned me to make one for our daughter. My version is made out of a poplar 1×8, 6 feet long. I just used a sander to add a small chamfer on all the edges before sanding the whole thing to 220. The board was then finished with Minwax dark walnut stain before adding the markings and numbers with acrylic paint. Finally, 2 coats of satin wipe on poly. It hangs flush on the wall with a key-hole routed in the back. We still have to pick up some kind of paint marker to mark her height as she grows.
Thanks for taking the time to look. Comments welcomed, as always.
