A wooden board provides a sturdy and natural surface for resin art projects. By making your own wood board, you can customize the size, shape, and type of wood to suit your artistic vision. In this step-by-step guide, we will show you how to create a wood board for resin artwork at home. Let's get started!

Materials Needed

  • Wood plank (such as pine, birch, or poplar)
  • Measuring tape or ruler
  • Pencil
  • Saw
  • Sandpaper (various grits)
  • Wood glue
  • Clamps

Step 1: Measure and Mark

Start by deciding on the desired dimensions of your wood board. Use a measuring tape or ruler to measure and mark the length and width on the wood plank. Make sure to measure accurately and use a straight edge to create straight lines.

Step 2: Cut the Wood

Using a saw, carefully cut along the marked lines to create your wood board. Take your time and follow proper safety precautions while using the saw. Ensure that the cuts are straight and clean.

Step 3: Sand the Surface

After cutting the wood, use sandpaper to smooth the surface of the board. Start with a coarser grit sandpaper and gradually move to finer grits to achieve a smooth finish. Sand both the front and back surfaces as well as the edges of the wood board. Remove any rough spots or splinters.

Step 4: Apply Wood Glue

Apply a thin layer of wood glue to one of the long edges of the wood board. Spread the glue evenly using a brush or a wooden stick. Make sure to apply enough glue to create a strong bond between the wood pieces.

Step 5: Join the Pieces

Align the cut edges of the wood board and press them together firmly. Use clamps to hold the pieces in place while the glue dries. Follow the instructions provided by the wood glue manufacturer regarding drying time and clamping pressure.

Step 6: Remove Excess Glue and Finishing Touches

Once the wood glue has dried, remove any excess glue using a scraper or sandpaper. Sand the entire surface of the wood board to create a smooth and even finish. Clean the board to remove any sawdust or debris.


By following this step-by-step guide, you can create a custom wood board for your resin art projects. Enjoy the process of making your own wooden surface and let your resin artwork shine on this beautifully crafted board. Unleash your creativity and have fun exploring the possibilities of resin art on your homemade wood board!

Additional Tips:

  • Choose a wood type that is suitable for your intended use and provides a smooth surface.
  • Consider adding a protective finish, such as varnish or wood sealer, to enhance the appearance and durability of your wood board.
