I made this Upcycled State Plaque using pallet wood and aged corrugated tin roofing. I upcycled more pallet wood for bracing material. Additional materials include pallet wood, recycled and aged sheet metal roofing, reused wood as bracing for the back and a D-hook picture hanging kit.
Use what you find to make your own Upcycled State Plaque!
First, find some scrap pallet wood. This project didn’t require a full pallet and took about two hours to complete. When making the cutout, I wanted to keep the cutout pieces whole because they will be used for a second plaque project. The cutout is made on the band saw. Then bracing attached on the back. Finally, I attached a rectangular piece of corrugated tin roofing to the back.
