This month we will look at creative ways to use wood sheets. I was able to create a white board, a chalk board and a magnetic game board.

For the white board, I used the Duro Laser Wood and simply engraved my pattern. It is a natural white board and did not have to be treated in order to be used with dry erase markers.

For the other board, I used the specialty paints from Home Depot. I am sure they can also be found at any store that carries paint. Follow the directions for each paint.

The board was painted in 3 coats of magnetic paint to increase the magnetic qualities and then painted with the chalkboard paint. The game pieces had our magnetic sheet applied to the wood sheet before the pieces were vector cut. I used Econo Laser Wood for the board and Birch and Walnut sheets for the games pieces along with our magnet sheet.
