Now that we had a template, we wanted to layer a different type of wood on top. Luckily, we had a 6 foot pallet in our shop! Brent disassembled it and cut the pallet boards into a few different widths.
To attach the pallet boards to the template, we used a little glue, then laid our piece of pallet board on top, flipped it over and put a nail through it with the air gun.
When all the letters were done, I gave them a coat of Walnut stain.
We alternated the other two colors of blue/grey on each plank.
The letters didn't feel finished at this point, so we chose to outline each letter with a small piece of trim. After the trim was applied, I brushed on a coat of sealer to darken the wood tone a bit.
To hang them, we nailed in some of these clips...
Hanging them proved to be a bit tricky...but we finally got them level.
