Rustic Chalkboard From Reclaimed Wood

These are perfect for displaying a menu, celebrating a wedding, or displaying a Bible verse! I am limited to a maximum size of 24 x 28 inches, but can make almost any size in between. I build a chalk tray into the frame when it hangs horizontally and I dowel the corners for extra strength.

I usually work from reclaimed pallet wood or tobacco stick hardwoods, but can use other woods.

** Liquid chalk markers may leave a little residue called ghosting. I have been able to remove this with rubbing alcohol but do not know if it damages the finish.
