TOOLS

 

PREPARATION

  • For best results, make sure you are working with a square tabletop. (We used a 16" x 16" tabletop).
  • Sand the table and wipe it down to remove all traces of dust.
  • Paint the table with your lighter base color; let it dry 24 hours.
  • Plan the size and placement of your board to make sure it will fit the tabletop.
