Using old trim board with some great colors on them, I made a 2 and 1/2 foot tall EAT sign. As you can see I get very technical with my angles. I lay the boards for the A over the E to get the right width and heighth and draw lines for what angles I need to cut. I assemble the letters with thin pieces of wood screwed to the backs of the boards. And if you don't need to be reminded to EAT you can always spell TEA!
