Sign for 'White Lady Art'

A different kind of creativity, I recently made a wooden sign for the street front of Dublin's new 'White Lady Art' Gallery.
I used the 'street tag' style of font from the 'White Lady Art's' website. I used a projector to trace the letters to the exact size onto a sheet of marine plywood, this is the same board used in boat building, so its super weatherproof. I cut the letters out with a handheld electric Jigsaw, then the letters were painted white with exterior gloss paint.
It was an oddness for me nailing it up it a crouded city street during the day. After I had positioned the letters tacking them up with a couple of nails, Iliocht my husband helped me put all the final nails in. I was going to paint the nail heads white but you can hardly notice them, they make the sign that bit different and real looking.
I'm feeling quite proud of it and think it looks as good as any of the signs on the street, so yay!
Here is a photo of the finished sign taken at the grand opening on November 2nd:
