Kid’s Blackboard

I made a blackboard a few years ago as part of a woodworking demonstration, and although it never got finished properly, it is still functional.  I dragged it out on the weekend as I was doing a bit more research for the upcoming toy-making course, and so let my resident expert tester have a go with it.

I still plan to make a new one, and actually finish it off this time with a shelf for holding chalk, a drink holder for the artist at work etc, but in the meantime, the current model seems a bit of a hit.

Nothing too complex in this design – corners are biscuit joined, a rebate cut in the back for the blackboard, and it is simply a sheet of MDF painted with blackboard paint that comes in a spray can.  In this case, I’m using a piece of rope tied between two eye hooks to keep the sides at the right distance which keeps it from falling down.

Not sure what other designs you have already seen of mine, but at the risk of repeating myself:

The last 3 are all playhouse furniture, and obviously the last 2 have already been built (if you look at photos of past projects on this site).  The images (and my specific designs) are copyright fwiw.

All done in CAD, so getting dimensioned plans is a pretty simple step from here.  All modeled directly in 3D
