This is a sandblasted Cedar sign that I made, designed and built. It is 1.5” thick clear cedar bought locally. It is about 15×18”. I welded and painted the bracket and stand together from standard steel stock and painted it with a good coat of primer and black top coat, along with a small outcropping for pushing it into the ground with foot pressure. It is a little harder to find the clear cedar in wide planks needed to make signs with, but it blasts nicely without the knots, well worth the extra trouble and cost. I Painted the sign with good quality exterior paints acquired from local suppliers (HD Behr rated very high with Consumer reports). I think they move it from yard to yard as sort of a trophy.

Great looking sign. Come back customers are an asset, as they are a form of free advertising….....if they’re happy…........they will tell others and you prosper!
