These are actually getting really popular, and they are so simple to make once you make your template. They are simply planks of 3/4 inch by 8 inch planks of Maple stock, cut to length and sanded, then I applied the varnish and let it dry before painting flat black numbers and tick marks with a stencil I made out of foam core poster board.
You can’t take the door jam with you when you move out of your parents’ house, but you can take this with you. As your child grows, you all know the deal… You have them stand against this board and mark their height, then write with permanent marker on the board the date.
It was a fun project, and these three are for my three boys who are 9, 6 and 3.
