  • Once the paint has dried, add a thin strand of adhesive on the front outer edges of the shiplap panels and place into the frame. Allow adhesive to dry thoroughly.
  • If you plan to use your shiplap sign without a frame, you can glue a smaller piece of basswood horizontally across the back of the shiplap sign to make sure the panels stay in place.
