Introduction: Wooden Steeler's Sign
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
- Wooden Cap
- Tape Measure
- White, Black, Yellow Spray Paint
- Acrylic Paint
- T&G Flooring
- Wood Glue
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!
