Step 1: Materials
- one or two 2'x4's
- light up arrow or sign (I found mine at a local antique store)
-sandpaper (60, 120, 220, 400 grits)
-wood stain and rag or brush
Step 2: Frame Construction
Rip the 2'x4's to 1 1/2" by 1 1/2" on a table saw or radial arm saw.
Cut four legs at 17", or whatever height you want the table to be
Cut four cross-pieces, which will connect all of the legs.
Screw and glue the cross pieces to the legs, at a distance from the top that is a little more than the height of the light up arrow/sign. For example, if my arrow is 6" tall, I would screw the crosspieces into the legs 6 1/2" down from the top so that there is room for the sign to sit on top of the crosspieces and still fit under the glass.
Once your frame is complete, sand it down with sandpaper, starting with coarse grit and ending with fine grit paper.
Stain the wood frame or paint it, whichever you think would look better. I used a dark walnut stain on my table.
Step 3: Add the Light Up Sign
An additional crosspiece or two may be necessary to provide a shelf for the sign to rest on.
Secure the sign to the frame using screws or glue, whichever seems more practical.
