How to install your Scout Letter Board
The Scout Menu Board is a beautiful format for sharing words in a smaller space. Having words displayed on the wall is always good. It can be a to-do list in your home, a welcoming message for your studio, an inspirational quote for little Tommy, or an ever-changing cafe menu at your local. It can be anything really, and that’s why we love it.

Step by step installation guide.
Whether it's a food menu you're displaying, a monthly plan, or an inspirational quote. The Wooden Menu Board will do its best to complement all of those things. Choose a configuration for your Wooden Letter Board. The rails can be installed below one another, or side-by-side, whichever is best suited to your space.
Select a wall-space to install the Wooden Bakery Menu. It is best for the rails to be fixed into studs or a solid wall.
Insert the first screw in the left hole on what will be your bottom rail.
LEVEL + POSITION
Using a level, position the rail so it is perfectly horizontal. Fasten both of the screws and ensure the rail is securely fixed to the wall.
POSITION + FIXING
Place the next rail on the first rail. Using this as a guide, position and fix the second railing onto the wall. Continue this method for the remaining rails of our Menu Board. Make sure the rails are nice and tight on the one below to ensure the rails are parallel.
ARRANGE YOUR TEXT
Slide the Letter Tiles one-by-one onto the rails from either end.
If extra letters are needed you can apply stickers which are provided with the letter packs - found under the lid of the letter box. Handy hint: use a kraft knife for lifting the stickers off of the sheet.
What is used to install the bars?
Each Scout Scrabble Letter Board comes with its own set of stainless screws and all hardware required for easy installation of your wall-mounted changeable menu board.
Can the Menu board be drilled into a tile?
Yes you can mount the Coffee menu board to tile or brick. You will need to source the correct screws from the hardware store though as ours aren’t designed for tile or brick.
What tools are needed for installing the Scout Wall Board?
The Scout Letter Board comes with all the necessary hardware for getting your cafe menu up and running, all you will need is an extra set of hands, a level and a drill.
What are the changeable letters made out of?
The Scout Menu Board letters are made of wooden display lettering and the rails are powder-coated aluminum available in black or white.
How big is the Scout Letter Board?
The Scout Scrabble Menu Board is 500mm / 19.6" wide. The height of the Mini Menu Board can be adjusted to suit the space that you are mounting it in. We recommended having the rails sitting on top of one another so it is tight and tidy with no gaps between the rails.
Is there a bigger size of the Scout Letter Board?
Yes, there sure is. The scout letterboard changeable letters are the small version of the larger Wooden Letter Board.
Can I buy extra changeable Letters if I run out?
Yes you sure can. If you have ordered and find that you’re short, we sell extra kits of the Changeable display letters. Please email us to arrange an order.
