Introduction: Wooden Steeler's Sign

About: I am a 17 year old high school student! I highly enjoy painting, cooking, and any form of woodworking! I hope you like my work! 😊

This is a step by step tutorial on how to make a wooden sign with a slate emblem. I will be giving you ALL the details on how to create this beautiful sign with only a small amount of materials! I hope you enjoy!

Step 1: Materials Needed

For this sign you will need to have:

  • Coping Saw
  • Painter's Tape
  • Chisel
  • Screwdriver
  • Hooks
  • Slate
  • Wooden Cap
  • Tape Measure
  • White, Black, Yellow Spray Paint
  • Acrylic Paint
  • T&G Flooring
  • Wood Glue
  • Hammer
  • Chain

Step 2: Spray T&G Flooring Yellow

Using your yellow spray paint and T&G flooring, spray it yellow, and allow it to dry.

Step 3: Creating the White Stripe

Next, add two pieces of painter's tape in a thin line to the middle of your board, spray paint it white, and let it dry.

Step 4: Creating the Black Stripe

Once the white paint dries, remove the current tape and add two more pieces of tape in a thicker stripe, spray paint it black, and let it dry.

Step 5: Slate Helmet

While the base of our project dries, grab your slate piece, a hammer, and a chisel and begin to shape the slate into a helmet.

Once that is completed, take your acrylic paint and begin painting on the Steeler's emblem to the helmet as seen in the pictures above and allow it to dry.

Step 6: Wooden Cap Frame

Next, grab your wooden cap and coping saw and start cutting it into two 11 1/2 pieces and two 13 3/4 pieces and spray paint them black.

While that dries, take your chain and hooks and spray paint them black as well and let it dry.

Step 7: Glue Together the Pieces

Take your dry T&G flooring, wooden cap pieces, slate, and wood glue and assemble all the pieces together and give them time to fully dry.

Step 8: Add Chain and Hooks

Finally, add the chain and hooks and any other details you desire and you're finished!
