I am almost done.
I glue the center from the bottom. I then stack some weights on towels and wait until the glue dries.
I drill out the holes for the pegs with the proper diameter drill bit. I use a hand drill here, but a power drill works too. I usually donít drill all the way through, but there is no harm in doing this. I just must be sure that the holes are deep enough for the peg inserts.
I put some wood glue on each peg and tap them in with a mallet. I use a square to try to make them straight.
I flip the board over after the pegs dry. I put three felt pads along the bottom. Three is best because the board will sit flat even on an uneven surface. With four pads, the board may rock. I put two eyehooks into the edge of the base so the owner can hang the board on the wall. I then sign the board with our names and the date. I also give each board a unique name. Finally I put one more coat of finish over the bottom. I must do this carefully because I don't want the finish to bleed through to the top.
