2 – 5/8" x 6" x 6'cedar fence (about $2.55 each)
Amy Howard (Toscana) Strasbourg white milk powder
3/4" decorative nails-optional ($2.99 for HL)
Waste wood (or other picket pieces)
Drill bit and drill bit (3/8)
2 – 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 50"
2 – 1/2" x 2 5/8" x 10 1/2" (or the total width of the two pickets)
The waste wood is about 9 inches long
Cut 2 cedar fences into 50 inches long. Measure the width of the two piles together (it should be about 10 1/2" -11"). Cut the cedar picket to this length, then cut it in half wisely.
Place a 1-inch beam from both ends of the 50-inch picket, apply glue and clamp it. Note: Gorilla glue will be activated and wet the surface (water bottle or rag) to be bonded before bonding.
Print out the LOVE template -> LOVE template. Cut out the letters and place them on the blackboard. Starting from the top, mark the letter position L on the board is 5 1/4", the heart is 15 1/2", V is 25 3/4", E is 36 1/8". Align L and E so that the straight part is on the center line where the two plates intersect.
To trace letters, I like to use a knife so that it is easy to see when cutting with a jigsaw saw.
Use a jig saw or scroll saw to cut out the letters. First, punch holes in the letters so that the saw blade can pass through. The 3/8 inch drill bit is the right size. Drill as many holes as needed.
Cut out the letters. It helps to have higher quality blades.
Cut off all love. (If there are any small pieces that break like a V, stick them on)
I painted a layer of white emulsion paint on the cedar fence and then dried it. Latex paint dries quickly and is easily troubled by sandpaper. When the paint dries, I chopped up about 9 inches of waste wood. For each letter, you need at least 8 3/4 inches of scrap, if necessary, paint on the scrap.
Turn the "love" card over, and glue the broken wood glue to the back of the card.
I initially painted some scraps pink and some red.
I'm not sure if this is my favorite, so I painted pink with red. How will you draw the sign?
Either way, I like it!
