The Bucky Beaver sign post is partially chewed through and is to lean precariously over the bumper boat pool. Doing this was relatively easy. I just cut a wedge our of the post and then welded the square tubing back up.
The sign structure is all hidden inside. I first welded up a frame while the steel was inside the sign, but with one side open for access
Here’s another closeup showing how the eye bolt was welded to some flat bar which is turn welded to the square tubing.
And here’s the sign glued up and ready for some hand work. I’ll be installing the permanent hanging clasps tomorrow and also welding the heavy steel rod (that is glued into the side of the sign) to the post when the sign is at the right angle.
Then we can attach the galvanized diamond lath to the post in preparation for the fiberglass reinforced concrete. The sculpting of the beaver and detailing of the sign faces will be the next step. Stay tuned…
