This project is superdoops easy and a christmas present for my step dad. This is a sign made with timber screws used in the lettering - I used this instructable here as a base:
- Woodshop timber (used trimming tool on router to put fillets on the edges)
- 647 External Timber screws 8-10 x 60mm (~$40)
I began by marking out the pattern as a 8 x 8 mm grid and marking out the font manually. I was going to use excel, but column formatting does not seem to be my forte. I used the font [Yoster Island] as a guide to mark out the pixels on the grid. (get it? Mark it out… ha ha)
I drilled the pilot holes by hand. Next time I will definitely be keen to use the CNC!
Putting all the screws in is a great watching tv activity. I tried to make sure all the screws were oriented the same way.
I found a tiny screw in the bottom of the box. I’ve decided to take care of it until it grows up.
If anyone would like to do a similar project, I have a spare 47 screws to throw your way.
