is just a chalkboard,but was inspired by Fidels awesome little piggy :) Kinda seen here........


Well,I had a spare 1 x 4 laying around,so I cut it up and joined it together,then cut it out with my bandsaw.


Then I painted it with black and green chalkboard paint,and decorated it with an old thermo and BGE handle that I had laying around :) It ain't much,but I'm happy with it B) Here's the final pics,thanks for lookin,.....................





This was a very fun and easy project,my older so and I enjoyed it :woohoo:
