My nephew really liked my new workshop so I voluntered to upgrade the sign at his very popular river tubing business. It was a fun project. My son kevin and I designed it and with just a day to make the sign , I used it as a timber framing school for my son and nephews. It has small curved braces and shouldered mortise and tenons with 1 inch octagon oak pegs holding everything together. We left the pegs an inch or so proud on both sides just for looks. With a lot of family muscle , including my brother , it was completed well before sunset and ready for the next days opening. You can see the old sign in the pictures , it worked fine , we just gave it a little flair. Oh yeah it’s made from 6×6 hemlock which sells for 1.25 a l.f. in our area.

That sign looks ten times cooler with your awesome framing.
You definitely have some framing skills.
I put your shop posting in my favorites.

That kind of construction will last a loooong time.

Have your say...
