I was asked to build a sign to cover a bricked up window at the front of a store. The building was built in the 50s, so I did a little research and layed out a design. The first picture is just concept that the customer approved. Then the border is painted on. The final product (without final finish) is the third picture. The final picture will be uploaded when the finish is dry and the sign is hung. It’s not much of a woodworking project. The wood is two sheets of furniture grade 3/4 inch plywood cut down and layed together. It will be hung with french cleats. The woodworking took all of about 45 minutes. I have been painting for a week. The sign measure 72”(w) X 88’ (h). Thanks for looking.
