Cutting Board/chalkboard tutorial

Here is a cute cutting board/chalk board that you can make in an afternoon.

Supplies needed.
1 - 1" pine board cut into a cutting board (make own pattern)
scroll saw
chalkboard  paint,
jute twine

I cute mine 6" x 12"

Next I stained the board front and back. Let it dry about 2hours.
Then I taped off an area that I wanted to use as a chalkboard.
Painted the area and let dry 1 hour.
Cut a piece of twine to wrap around arm of cutting board.

Now you are ready to add whatever saying you wish.
It's that easy.
Won't you give it a try.

                                   Have a great day!
