I decided to make this sign out of plywood, MDF and led strip.
First of all I used my circular saw to cut the pieces for my frame out of MDF.
Then I used a hand saw and my miter box to make the cross cuts.
I glued the frame and clamped it with my farm clamp.
For more strength I also screwed the frame.
I also glued four blocks of wood to add more strength and have a place for the back to sit on.
I designed the layout of my sign and printed it out as a template. I joined the pieces of the template and glued them on a piece of plywood with spray glue.
I drilled the starting holes on my drill press and cut out the areas I didn’t want on my scroll saw.
I used rust oil remover to remove the template.
I filed and sanded the top.
I glued the top on the base.
I flushed trimmed the top using my router and a flush trim bit.
I used a rounded rasp to make a place for the wire.
I added the led strip. I secured it by adding hot glue with my hot glue gun.
I painted the piece with two coats of red latex color and then added a couple of coats of clear satin water based varnish.
I connected all the wires with the power source and then solder it with the led strip.
I secured all the wires and the power supply in place with hot glue.
My sign is ready, all I need is pop corn and a good movie to watch!
I decided to call my home cinema “Cine Romanzo”!
