Step 1: Materials
3/4" sch40 PVC pipe
Step 2: Bending
The sign was pretty easy to bend, it's just a decretive tin sign! I just measured where I wanted it and drew a couple lines on it then bent it over my work bench with my hands and a rubber mallet.
Step 3: The Handle
I cut a piece of wood to fit between the sides of the bent sign, then drilled a hole in the center slightly smaller then pipe I then roughed up the end of the pipe a bit with a grinder so the wood glue would bond to it when I tapped it in.
Step 4: Final Assembly
I attached the wood to the sign with some screws. Then bent the excess corners over the top of the wood! I also turned the wood a little so the handle isn't flat with the pan.
Step 5: Paint Handle
I took the handle off and sprayed it with some black spray paint.
