How-To: Road Sign Fence

Craft & Design

Instructables member wholman designed this fence, and as construction manager for the Greensboro, AL chapter of YouthBuild, he made it a community project as well:

“The local county and state highway engineering offices donated old road signs, which we then cut, sanded, filed, and drilled to create pickets. Using jigs and a self-organized assembly line, (my) students manufactured nearly a thousand pickets for roughly 225 linear feet of fencing. By cutting and randomly re-assembling the signs, the graphics were broken and rebuilt into a new collage of abstract symbol and color.”

Wholman’s Instructable takes you through all the materials and steps you’ll need to build a fence of your own.
