Simply so, what is the best material to make a chalkboard?

You can use just about any surface. I would try to use a thin piece of wood. I have even seen some people use thick cardboard. I made my chalkboard from just a cut piece of plywood and about 3 -4 coats of chalkboard paint.

Beside above, can you use chalkboard paint on MDF? You can apply the chalkboard paint directly onto the wall as long as the surface is clean and well prepared. Prime the MDF first with a primer undercoat as this will allow the chalkboard paint to adhere well to the MDF. Next apply the chalkboard paint to the board using a foam roller.

Simply so, can you make a chalkboard out of plywood?

With the circular saw, cut plywood to the size you want the chalkboard to be. Following the directions on your can of chalkboard paint, paint your plywood. It may take 2-3 coats. Follow the instructions on the can for dry time in-between coats.

Does chalkboard paint work on wood?

Chalkboard paint can be applied like regular paint, but Radek says it should not be applied directly to plastic, bare wood, or metal without priming the surface first. Radek says that once the paint is cured, the surface should be prepared for chalk by rubbing the side of chalk over entire surface and erasing.
