I was given some Bradford Pear branches from a friends tree that was struck by lightning. They sat around the shop for months before I decided to do these. Gave them out at a lunch @ Rocky & Carlo’s in Chalmette a couple of weeks ago.

First of all, Welcome to LJ’s. Great bunch of woodworkers from around the world share their ideas here. Second, you have to share how you made these signs.

The branches were ripped on the band saw, bark was sanded off. A rail and router sled was used to freehand the letters leaving the face of the letters at the same radius as the branch.
