free plans: how to make a
||Here is an elegant bulletin board that can hold messages, notes, letters and photographs. It acts
just like a tack-board, but you don't have to fumble around with push-pins and we think that you
will agree that it looks much
better. You can customize the colors and the dimension to create a project that fits into
||plywood, fabric, ribbon, picture hanging hook, tacks. optional: wood for frame, brads, paint, cork, spray adhesive. A complete
material list is provided below.
||saw, scissors, small hammer, measuring tape, utility or hobby knife. optional: paintbrush, nail set, miter box saw.
A complete tool list is provided below.
||The plan itself is free! Estimated cost of materials: $20

||Durable fabric. You will need enough to cover the piece of plywood that you are
using and about 4" (10cm) more in width and length to wrap around the edges of the wood. For example,
if you plywood is 24" (60cm) wide, your fabric should be 28" (70cm) wide.
||Plywood or other sheet wood. You can use any type of wood, but it should be about 3/8" - 1/2" (9-13mm)thick: thicker
is fine but unnecessarily adds weight.
||Ribbon. Choose a color that complements your fabric (and frame if you are going to make one).
We prefer cloth ribbon as opposed to the plastic-type ribbon that is commonly available. See
step 4 below for issues regarding the ribbon.
||If you will be making a frame around your bulletin board, you will also need wood for
the frame, paint and brads (see plan for more details).
