How to make a kids blackboard

 I thought I'd put up some photos and brief instructions to help you make a sturdy blackboard/ painting easel. Here's what you'll need.

3 x 100mm x 1.8m fence palings. (for $8-$10 more you could use dressed pine.)

600mm x 1200mm plywood.

31mm x 11mm pine

2 x 85mm hinges.

Thin rope or pull start cord.
