Built for the charity fund raising group, Public Inc., this mixed barn board panel works great for their motto, “Why Shouldn’t Everyone Profit By Doing Good.” this sign is displayed just inside the front door of their office in an old Toronto loft.

We used grey barn board, red barn board, golden colored hemlock barn flooring, new pine with a Ponderosa finish and brown board.

The sign is 8’ x 9’ and the tin letters are 12” square and 3” thick.

We made the large panel in two sections and joined them on site during installation.

Very nice old ‘flavor’ look. Are the letters made of barn wood as well?

Hey there Ron

No…the letters are tin. They cost $1100.00 for the lot of them. That works out to about $29.00 each!

The letters are hollow and there are tabs on each letter to hang them. Problem was they tabs are not all the same distance from the top of each letter. So…we couldn’t just draw a straight line and sink our screws. They all would have been at different levels.

What I decided to do was lay out each line of letters upside down and backwards. Then I laid them over with a roll of painters paper and marked where each tab was for each letter. Then I rolled it over the wooden panel the right way and marked the holes.

It was a bit of work!

Rebarn -

Thanks for the reply. $1,1100, OUCH. You came up with a very good solution to a sticky problem. The end result is very cool.
