This One has seen better days, A perfect example of why use HDU ( High Density Urethane Foam) in an xterior application, This sign is made of solid wood and plywood and is Quickly deteriorating.
The Bulk of this sign is all HDU Foam with the exception of the interior structural frame.
The back ground is to be cut to ressemble wavy corragated metal with the smaller text protruding from it (cut from the same piece), The "Moat" lettering is to be 1-1/2" thick and will be stood off of that corragated back ground to give it some shadow.
The "mountain" text is raised from the Moat Text but also cut out of the same piece of foam,(nothing gets glued on so nothing can fall off).
Although this interior frame work is plywood (exterior grade) If I do my Job correctly it should never see any water.
Below are a couple of shots of the Cutting process.
