We’re in the process of selling our house and the sign didn’t look very good compared to others around so I decided to make a post and frame to help give some emphasis to the sign.

I put a 4×4 into the ground and then slipped the post over it. The sign is 24” x 18” which I put into the frame and just pressed a piece of trim against it to hold in place. The angle for the top and mid way was 10 degrees. The joints are off a little primarily due to some serious cupping in the original wood.

Looks good. MUCH better then what the realtors usually put out.

You know, the realtor is gonna want that when your house sells! :)

Nice, Adds a classy touch to the boring 4×4 signs.
After you sell your house you can go into business selling these to realtors.
