It became obvious to me that I'd been planning to add address numbers to my house when I found the perfect numbers tucked away in a drawer! I had completely forgotten about them. Would I embarrass myself if I said I'd had them since my home remodel in 2012??
I'll just make myself feel better by saying I never found the right project up until now! We partnered with Surebonder, a family owned and operated manufacturer of hot melt products since 1968, to come up with the perfect modern house number sign for my house.
We used simple materials that required only easy cuts and the entire thing is constructed with Surebonder's 3-Minute Construction Hot Glue. Did you know such a thing existed? Take a look at how it all came together.
We cut all the pieces to size on a miter saw, but this could be easily accomplished with a hand saw and miter box. There are four boards for the front, two for the back, two to make up the "planter" box and additional two boards for the sides of the box. The measurements were all based on the width of the cedar board which is approximately 3 1/3 inches wide. The size of the sign can be adjusted according to your preferences.
We made ourself a little corner jig out of faux Duplo blocks. You, of course, could use a commercial corner jig, but our little kids' block one worked quite nicely. We needed a way to keep the vertical and horizontal edges straight. Steph and I worked as a team, I glued and she put the parts together. Hot glue, as you know, cools fast, so it's helpful to have a buddy so you can work quickly.
