Ohhh, thanks for the step-by-step. I've been meaning to do this for a while myself. I don't think most store-bought bulletin boards are big enough.

The thought of trying to cart a 4x8 sheet home in my car and figuring out how to hang it have been my blocks. How much did it cost for the cuts?


2 cuts are free at Home Depot and given the way we lined the board up it only took two to get the three different sizes I wanted (basically one vertical, one horizontal).


Thank for posting this info on homasote. I've been thinking about making cork boards for about a month. I feel better about the decision seeing your examples. Now I just need to decide wht size I want.


Awesome! I did this years ago--basically I had the HD crew cut the board into 2 4x4 pieces, then hung one in the garage covered with a piece of denim (stapled), then screwed into the studs. The second piece was painted the same color as the wall in the hallway and I just screwed it into the studs in the house. It lasted about 7 years (until we moved house). Now I'll have to make another for my current home office.
