History in a Name

My grandfather passed away last year and he lived on a farm which has been in the family for over 200 years. He was a farmer and mechanic. After going through the barns my son's girlfriend was spelling out our last name with old farm items. I came up with this. After screwing holes near each letter, they are put on with wire tied around a screw in the back. - This is what took the longest.
The wood is stained, painted, and sanded to make it look old. The back is being supported with metal brackets. This is very heavy! Due to the weight it is bolted into studs.
