Letters Part 1

I work a night shift, so when the rest of my family is up and around I am usually not.  Last weekend  I was trying to catch a nap before my wife left for her cousins birthday party.  I woke up about an hour before the party and my wife asked me if I could make something for her gift.  She new she wanted an "S" cut out of some old barn tin, but that is about as far as the direction went.....I also told her in an hour, she will have to take what she can get.  Here is what I came up with; the letter "S" cut out of the tin she requested and then mounted to some fence pieces I had laying around.  Sometimes it is nice to have a garage full of crap.


  1. did you free hand the letter or did you use a particular font? How did you fasten the tin to the wood? I would love to duplicate this! what are the dimensions?
