I made this in my welding class at Butte College. I had the letters plasma cut on a cnc plasma machine. Then welded the riser and letters to the riser with chain for flair and a longer piece chain hang the sign from. I then painted it camouflage, and painted the US Army yellow and background black. It has custom LED lights I soldered and wired together with a plug to plug into a wall. I also built a wooden box mimicking a wooden Army crate painted olive drab green, with a hinge and black foam cut specifically for the sign. It has a custom hook I made so he can hang the sign from the hook.
I took a roller from a treadmill, a trailer stand, and some scrap metal and castors to build a roller for our shop chop saw.
