We recently had our open house at TechShop in San Jose. To help direct traffic and pedestrians, we created these signs. We wanted something that was sturdy, and was relatively cheap so we would have to worry to much if the sign "walked away." Here is a quick instructable on how to make an easy sign just like ours!
Step 1: Sign parts...ASSEMBLE!!!
What you will need:
2 2'x4' sheets of particle board (3/8-1/2" thick)*
2 lengths of chain, 10" long
12 screws (slighlty shorter than the thickness of your board (if it is a 1/2" board, then 3/8" screws)
* Note: It can sometimes be hard to find perfectly sized particle board (or any wood). I used the panel saw at TechShop in San Jose to quickly cut my pieces down to size!
