Step-by-step instructions

The first thing we are going to do is to measure the place where we are going to install this plaque. It’s been raining all day so, I have set up my workshop inside the house. Hopefully, I should be able to finish this project without creating a lot of mess in the house.

First, you need to cut the number from a piece of cardboard and then spray paint it.

Then, you’ll need to cut the pallet wood piece based on the measurements you previously took.

Using a sander (manual or powered), make the edges smooth by sanding the pallet boards. If you prefer a rough and tough look to your project, skip this step.

Once you have all the 4 sides done, you simply need to join them with the right size nails or screws. Take a look at the different wood joint methods to help you.

With a piece of scrap plywood, cover the backside of the box. The artificial turf is going to sit on this plywood sheet.

With a hammer, fix nails on the plywood sheet on the alternate corners first. By fixing in alternate corners you will secure the sheet from moving left or right. Once you finish putting the nails on all the edges, put one on each side to give it a bit of extra support.
