Materials and Tools:

(7) large paint sticks
hand saw
wood glue
oak wood stain
clear satin polyurethane
220-grit sanding block
rag
paintbrush
brass metal house numbers
flat head screwdriver
clear double-sided mounting tape
pencil
speed square

Cut Sticks

Measure and mark one paint stick at 4". Use a speed square and pencil to make a line at the 4-inch mark. Cut using a hand saw. Repeat steps to make 16 4-inch pieces.

Attach Wood Pieces

Apply wood glue to the two remaining large full-length paint sticks, spacing them about 3-1/2 to 4” apart. Starting at the top, place the 4-inch pieces perpendicular to the full-length sticks. Stack them, with no spaces in between, all the way down to the bottom. Leave the piece on a flat surface and let the glue dry overnight.

Apply Stain

Lightly sand all corners and edges with a 220-grit sanding block, and apply oak stain with a paintbrush. Wipe off excess stain with a rag. Let stain soak in and dry for an hour. Spray entire piece with a coat of clear satin polyurethane. Let dry.

Attach Numbers

Dry fit metal house numbers on the wood, spacing them evenly from top to bottom. Using a flat head screwdriver and screws supplied with the metal numbers, attach numbers to the wood.
