    Default Alternative for MDO or Marine Grade Plywood

    My son is building a shed for a local school as an Eagle Scout Service Project and we are looking for a inexpensive way to have a smooth surface on the back to turn into a chalk board. Looking at MDO or Marine Grade plywoods and finding them hard to get and extremly expensive. Any thoughts on how we can make this work with out breaking the budget? Thank you

    I thought chalkboard paint was an interior finish.
