Small hooks (For hanging purposes)
(2) Large hooks
25mm Brad nails
(1) 19mm x 32mm x 244cm Moulding
(2) 1 x 4 x 185cm
(1) 1/2 Sheet plywood

STEP 1Cut your plywood backing to 37cm x 61cm

STEP 2Use a straight edge to find the center of your plywood backing. Create four even rectangles to help map out your design.

STEP 3Cut a scrap piece of 1x3 at 45 degrees to use as a stencil for your mat holder. Use this stencil to trace your design.

STEP 4Start each board with a 45 degree cut. Line up each board with the design you traced. Once lined up, use a pencil to trace the cut mark on each board. This will be where the 1x3 overhangs the plywood backing.

STEP 5Cut your 1x3's on the cut lines. All cuts will be made at 45 degrees.

STEP 6Attach all 1x3 boards with a brad nailer and 2.5cm nails.

STEP 7Cut four pieces for your border (2 long edges @ 61cm and 2 short edges @ 39cm). Attach them to the mat holder with a brad nailer and 2.5cm nails.

STEP 8Sand & stain your piece.

STEP 9Attach large hooks on the front for the mat and small hooks on the back for hanging.


Hang your mat!
