Once the pieces had all been routed it was time to the glue up. We used the routed slots in the center of the sign as a jig to tack up the steel frames, then pulled them out and did the final welding. Some steel eye bolts were also welded to the top of the frame. A 5/8″ steel bar was welded to the post side of the sign as well. The sign was hung from the matching eye bolts on the structural steel post. Then we welded the 5/8″ steel rod to the post on the bottom to keep the sign from swinging should there be a strong wind.
