Hi Lee
We use 2" x 2" planed softwood and put a point on one end. Join the 2 correx boards back to back with either correx tape or plastic fixings from
Alplas. Tel: 01702 720000
Hope that helps

Lee,
I wouldnt think any one does a kit,
after all its only a bit of timber, and perhaps a couple of screws or cable ties

We make our own .... we order the wood in or collect it from the local timber merchant.

we make our our too.. :) pretty easy to do...

we use 3x2 and cut the bottom to a V-point
the top has a 6mm slot cut in the centre of the 2 inch side,size of sign dictates how deep this needs be..
the sign slips in the slot and we screw through to the other side sandwiching the corriboard in the centre.... :wink:

we paint the post black using fence woodstain...

3" x 2" Brian M......dam must be windy in Ireland.

Obsiously the agents dont want to pay much in SE UK as most around my way are def. under 2"x2".
