Introduction

Display cards and photos without poking holes in them. The bulletin board pictured here requires a 32-by-24-inch piece of plywood, seven 24-inch lengths of 2/3-inch-wide screen molding, a ruler, pencil, hammer, nails, paint, and wood glue. Paint plywood and molding strips contrasting colors. Let dry; use glue and nails to fasten two strips to top and bottom edges of plywood. Before attaching remaining strips, measure and mark spacing, 1/8 inch less than height of item: 1 7/8 inches for business cards, 5 7/8 inches for standard 4-by-6-inch photos. To display, bow card a little to slip it between strips.

    I've made a similar board for displaying photos and for that one I put a piece of fabric over the plywood instead of painting and it was just beautiful.

    I used a strong glue instead of nails and hammer for applying the strips and it worked great. This is a great project!
