This week I want to share one of the hubby’s projects that was a gift for an Oklahoma University fan. An OU home sign made from cedar pickets, corrugated metal, and a metal OU.
I’m sorry I’m missing some of the photos. But it’s an easy project, and I can walk you through the steps.
How to Make an OU Home Sign
He started with two 6” wide cedar fence pickets laying them out side by side. Then spacing the metal letters out on the wood. Marking off where he wanted to cut, leaving some on each end for a piece of trim.
Remove the letters and cut the wood, then cut some trim to fit across each end.
Next, he glued the trim end pieces on holding them together with clamps, until dry.
While that’s was drying he spray painted the OU letters with the Oklahoma University colors.
Once the clamps were removed the wood was flipped over, holes were pre-drilled, and four screws were added through the back to secure the glued trim.
Then flip the wood back over and add two large upholstery tacks on each end. It would be best to pre-drill the holes so not to crack the wood. Like what happen to the left side trim.
Now lay the letters back out on to the wood spacing them to your liking. Then use the clear non-foaming gorilla glue to hold them in place.
Add a sawtooth hook to the back of your OU home sign, or homemade wire hanging hardware, and that’s it.
