This report is to continue with the siltcasting signage project from the last post. Modular concrete blocks are used to form a supporting structure for the newly-cast concrete sign panels. Construction volunteer Daniel Wagner is trimming off a block with masonry saw to prepare for the final assembly.

Daniel and construction volunteer Liam Walsh are preparing for the fourth course to complete the block stem wall.

Both signs are incorporated into the block wall and temporarily held with two-by-fours and bar clamps. The signs were sealed with clear protective coatings. The silt texture on the sign gives distinct character to otherwise mandane structure.

New directional signage awaits visitors.
