Summary

This a dry erase board I designed after I found that most larger dry erase boards required screwing into a stud, and are crazy expensive. So this was my alternative.

Instructions

  1. Print 2 each "Mount1".
  2. Print 2 each "Mount2".
  3. Print 4 each "Mount3".

Note: The flat portions of the mounts go to the rear of the dry-erase board.

  1. Print 1 each "Pen Clip".
  2. Procure a 24" X 30" X 1/8" pane of glass. (preferably tempered)
  3. Using sandpaper wet-sand the edges of the glass to remove any burs.
  4. Dry fit the mounts in place and mark with dry erase markers.
  5. Now remove the mounts and gently wet-sand the areas marked with a course sand paper. Now clean the area with a paper towel and a little rubbing alcohol. This is to remove any dust or oils that may be on the glass.
  6. Next run a liberal bead of "Liquid Nails Clear Silicone Adhesive (or equivalent) into the mounts openings and fit into place. Don't be afraid to put a glob of it in there you can always clean it up later. Also be careful that you don't hurt yourself pushing the mounts on. They have a tight fit.
  7. Remove the excess silicone with a paper towel dampened with a little rubbing alcohol.
  8. Let the silicone cure for 48 hours (per directions on tube).
  9. Apply 8 each medium command adhesive strips to the back of the mounts.
  10. Using a paper towel moistened with rubbing alcohol clean the area the dry erase board will go to remove any dust or oils.
  11. Apply the dry erase board. Be sure to press each mount into the wall for a good 20 seconds each. This gives the adhesive time to bond to the wall.
  12. Install the pens and pen clip.
  13. Now your all done and have a cool minimalist dry erase board to organize with or just be creative with.
