WHAT YOU NEED FOR THIS PROJECT

sander (rental available at our Tool Rental Center)
Jigsaw or Dremel (rental available at our Tool Rental Center)
Circular saw (rental available at our Tool Rental Center)
• Mark and cut a line 18 inches from one end of the plywood, which will make the back piece and piece for your letters.
• Be sure not to cut the table beneath the plywood. Cut on foam or just off the edge of the table.
• Find the corner points for each letter and trace them onto the plywood.
• Carefully cut out each letter with a jigsaw or Dremel rotary tool. Then, sand the edges smooth.
Tip: You can also paint the letters directly onto the plywood if you would rather not use a saw.
• For the railing, cut the 1 x 2 pine or MDF board to match the top and bottom edges of the back piece.
• Finish the top rail with the nailer or hammer and nails, and repeat for the bottom.
• Then mark, cut and repeat for the two sides.
• Paint the back and letters. We used Behr Premium Plus paint and primer for the back and silver glitter paint for the letters.
• Set the pieces aside to completely dry.
• Start with the “O.” Center it left and right, top and bottom. Attach it with wood glue and finishing nails.
• Attach the remaining letters in the same manner.
