I was helping the city of Buckley come up with ideas to start rebuilding their community. One the topics brought up was having signs on the highway. The issue was the cost. Needing new signs every month was going to start eating into their event budgets. The solution I came up with was to make a removeable bracket that could be placed onto old pallets. Once the event is over just remove the bracket and throw away the sign, that way the cost would be reduced to free. All the parts required are included in the attachments. It takes 4 pieces of 12x12 material and a little bit of assembly work. the brackets seen here were created with .25 aluminum due to the city being located in a temperate zone to avoid rust. see instructions for how to assemble them.
