I was asked to make a barrier for the infants in the school to not pass a certain point on the school grounds.
Its made from 3”x2” and 3/4” WBP Plywood.
Aluminium primer was applied for protection with gloss paint used to highlight the warning sign and top rail.
Not wanting it to look to scary for the kids, i asked one the the older kids to draw a silloutte of a little girls head.
I then laminated the drawing, cut out the parts i didnt need and traced it onto 1/8” MDF.
After which i was able to use to as my template for the cut outs as there are 6 barriers in total.
The barriers are 1600mm x 1000mm.

Hmmm… “No Girls” at the school :) Just kidding, they look sturdy and I liked the fact that you asked one of the kids to make the contribution of the art. They’ll remember that for a long time.

I know they have to be painted for weather, but it’s ashame. They look so good pre-finish.
