I then slid the back piece of the sign over two steel 5/8″ thick rods and welded the steel frame for the sign to this rod. The centre section of the sign was next which was glued to the back. At this point the rooster leg framework was inserted into two holes I had drilled through the top of the sign. The cutouts in the centre section allowed me room to weld these rods to the framework. This was followed by the front of the sign which encapsulated the steel support in the centre. The two steel rods protruding out of the back would be sculpted into branches of the tree which held up the sign.
