Today, I dusted off the pieces for the Cultus Lake Boardwalk and then began their assembly. There were four pieces for each of the three signs. I laid the sign fronts face down on the work table, then the centres. I then places the plasma cut toppers into place and welded on the steel tubing which would protrude out the back of the sign. I then spread a thin layer of PB Bond 240 glue onto the face and added the middle layer of the sign. I screwed it into place and then positioned the steel topper. I spread the one part Coastal Enterprises glue on this layer and spritzed with a mist of water. The wood grained textured back panels were then laid on top and screwed into place.
We then lifted the sign and positioned it on a temporary stand where it was welded into place. We'll do the final finishing and painting on this stand. Once that is done we'll cut the steel tubes and weld them to the angle iron bracket before delivery.
