DIY Wooden Photo Board
I've been looking to try some new things with product photography and I saw a lot of awesome photos using a wooden background, so I decided to make my own!
I wanted the project to be simple and easy for anyone to make.
Tools and Materials
The materials were:
- Precut 1x4 common boards
- Kreg Jig K4 with Kreg Screws
- Belt Sander
- Varathane Weathered Wood Accelerator (Color of your choice)
- Varathane wood stain
Prep the Boards
I started off by sanding the edges of the boards on the belt sander just to make the edges look a little rougher and less even.
I added a pocket hole on the end of each board on opposite sides of the board.
Screw the Boards Together
You screw the boards together.
Rough Up the Boards
Rough the boards using a portable belt sander, this will also help the stain and aging accelerator soak in easier.
"Age" the Wood
Using a brush I heavily laid on coats of the aging accelerator and then I let the board sit overnight for it to dry.
Finish the Other Side
I used a normal wood stain on the other side, but you could use a different shade of Weathered Wood Accelerator but you can choose whatever finish you want.
Take Some Photos
Now you've got a cool background, have fun with it and take some photos!
