Clapboard sign

My daughter and her husband bought a new home so I wanted to make something for her. I love the clapboard stuff. Size is an issue since I don’t have pass through, so I cut half circles with scores to create the clapboard effect.
I was able to make the 18 inch circle and personalize for them. I used a long piece on the back to screw the two together as well as a narrow piece on the front under the initial. This all hides the screws while making it sturdy and raises the initial to provide a shadow. I glued some supports under the name as well. Nothing stellar in design but a big hit and that’s what I wanted.


Very nice—you’d never know it started out in pieces!


Thanks for explaining how you put it all together. I bet they loved it! Nice work.


You did a great job! Love the shadow look! Beautiful piece, off to my machine to try to emulate that!!

Excellent thinking to work around to get the size you wanted.


Thank you for explaining just how you made the 18" circle. Why didn’t I think of that?
