How Do You Make A Sign Post, M*A*S*H Style?
One of the longest running black comedy TV shows, M*A*S*H, about an army hospital base set in war time Korea was enjoyed by a large audience for its frequent comedic antics and occasional heart warming stories; despite it ending its run in 1983, it still inspires many to recreate memories of its characters, stories, props and sets, most commonly in the form of theme parties, a Facebook profile and Blogs. One of the most well-known props was the M*A*S*H sign post, pointing the way to well known cities in the U.S. and Asia. Here is a way to create your own sign post which you can plant in your yard for a fun decoration. You can use your own cities or recreate the M*A*S*H sign post as shown. Go to your local hardware store, such as Lowes or Home Depot and purchase an 8′ wooden pole, a small bag of QUIKRETE concrete mix, 8-10 fence pickets and if necessary, a quart of white outdoor paint. Using the post hole digger, dig a hole about 1 foot deep and plant the pole in an area in your garden
