Ribbon memo board – easy project for a nice gift

Memo board

I’ve made this old fashion ribbon memo board for my brother Joaquin’s birthday.

I’m very happy with the result, although my idea was to put decorative upholstery nails on the intersections but I couldn’t because the MDF board that I got (kindly donated by master woodworker friend, Esteban) was so dense that I found it impossible to hammer the nails on. I even had to hammer down the staples because they didn’t go all the way down!

If you want to see how I made it, you can check the pictures and comments on my flickr following this link.

If you have any questions, just let me know!

P.S. Yes I’m also working on hats… more on that soon!


  1. Funny how easy it is to get distracted by side projects…

  3. Looks terrific! I’ve had good luck with acoustic ceiling panels. Much less dense and easily covered. I also use them to cover worktable top so I can stick pins in them. They’re available at hardware stores.
    K Q:-)
