With a standard scrabble board, I'm not sure that would be possible. I guess you could try sanding it....I'm not very encouraged that you would be successful.

Since most boards are a sheet of printed paper wrapped around (or glued onto) a thicker board, you might be able to use a heatgun to loosen up the glue and pull the paper off. Then just stick it on some sheetmetal and you are good to go.

Not sure how easy it would be to get that printed paper off though. You might end up ruining it.

I did this for a Christmas present... except with one modification.
I used a piece of scrapbooking paper that is really sturdy but not thick and has the scrabble board on it.  This way it goes on a refrigerator.  Each individual tile has magnets on it and there are two magnets on each tile holder thingy.

Ooooh.  Do you have a picture of it?  I'd love to see it finished.

FRIGGEN sweet!!! I wanna do that now.... Might just have to run out for paper. Where did you get the paper? You think I could mount it on tagboard AFTER I covered the paper with magentic stuff? Just wondering. Humm I could make a scrabble game for my roomie so that our peices wouldnt flop all over the board.

So the letters stick to the fridge and not to the board?  Kind of helps to hold it to the fridge?  Or am I seeing this wrong?

And you bought the scrapbook paper with the scrabble board already on it?  This is sooo cool.

And I like how you've got the extra letters out and waiting.

I think that's what I'd like to so as well.  I have several boards, and if would be great to just use one of them.  I may just experiment with them to see if I can dismantle a board.
