Building the information center doesn't require a lot of hardware. Most of the items you'll need can found be at any hardware store or woodworking store. The keyhole hangers and galvanized steel for the chalkboard were purchased at a local home improvement center.

I ordered the 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" brass hinges (7665ZA) that I used for the lid from Rejuvenation Hardware. Information for ordering these hinges is listed below.

You'll also need paint to make the chalkboard. I got the chalkboard paint I used at a Benjamin Moore dealer. The information below will help you find the nearest store. You'll also find it at the Woodsmith Store.

If you add hooks for keys, the 7/8" J-Hooks (00H27.30) that are shown on the back cover of Woodsmith No. 163 can be ordered from Lee Valley.
