A few months ago I found the second picture on Facebook (if anyone knows the source of this picture, please post it in the comments). I thought to myself, "I could make that.". This was around the same time that I was looking for Christmas gifts for my family. I feel bad that in my haste to get this finished I missed taking pictures of a few steps. I hope that with my documentation we can fill in the blanks.
Step 1: Supplies Needed
- 2 - 6x6x8 foot fence posts
- 32 - 3 inch grabber screws
- 1 - cheap 4 inch phillips screw driver (the handle will need to be cut short)
- Wood Glue
- 2 Cans Wood filler
- 2 Cans Spray Paint (each color)
Step 2: Cut and Plane Wood
Plane wood from the 5.5 inches down to only 5 inches.
Of the boards that are 19 3/4 inches long, cut 45 degree angles on the ends. These will be the diagonal connecting lines as part of the "N".
***This is the step I didn't take a pictures of***
Drill 32 holes in total (8 in each diagonal piece) deep enough for the screws to hold the N together.
Step 3: Assembly
Step 4: Fill Holes, Gaps and Sand
Sand everything smooth.
