Clamp the two 2×2 boards to drill the hole for the dowel so they are perfectly aligned.
Make a note of the positioning of the boards and the pocket holes.
Once you build the frame, paint or stain it in the color of your choice before attaching the chalkboard, dry erase board etc.
For the magnetic chalkboard, I used a galvanized metal sheet and painted it with chalkboard spray paint.
When attaching the faces, it is best to do it in this order – magnetic chalkboard, dry erase board, chicken wire and then finally, the pegboard.
The edges of the chicken wire are sharp. Also, the raw edge of the magnetic chalkboard is visible. I hid them under extra 1×4 boards to create a finished look.
