Our homeowner's organization wants to mount a name sign on our community ho use. Maybe 4ft wide by 2ft high. I had suggested a commercially made sign printed on the usual aluminum/composite board, typical of most stores and commercial establishments. But others want a more hand-made feel and sugge sted a wood-lettered sign mounted on a board. I understand their intention , but think that a hand-made sign would be a maintenance headache, having t o repaint or reseal it annually. Regardless, if we went with something ha nd-made, what would be a good material? Maybe individual letters cut from plastic lumber via a jigsaw (and glued to a board)? Would that get too messy because the letters would melt and fray as they're cut?
All suggestions appreciated.
