    Mr. Clean magic eraser has taken it off my walls, but I don't know if it would take it off of wood without harming the finish. That's a tricky one.

    If the Magic Eraser doesn't work you can try a regular pencil eraser (with a little elbow grease) or rubbing alcohol BUT be very careful with the alcohol - I would spot test somewhere inconspicuous to make sure it doesn't hurt whatever type of finish you have.

    Mr Clean Magic Eraser took Sharpie off my kitchen table, which is wood, with no problem. That would be the first thing I'd try.

    Believe it or not, find a dry erase marker and color over it with that then remove with water. It should work. Try a test area first.

    Since this is a budget board... Mr Clean Magic Erasers are just Melamine Sponges + you can get them super cheap looking around on the web. I have like a hundred because I bought a case a couple of years ago :) Love those things!

    Try baby wipes. They remove all kinds of kid messes, though I can't say I've dealt with permanent marker yet.

    This actually works reasonably well...I don't know the chemistry behind it, but know it works wonders on a dry erase marker board.

    Sometimes coke works too. I used to get black marker all over my hands at one of my old jobs and Coke (name brand for some reason) took it right off.

    My friend used Colgate to get sharpie of her wood dining rom table. She said it was a miracle and didn't damage her table at all.
