The principal at my school is (re)married to the nurse. So being that his birthday is coming up at the end of the month she asked me to make a “sign” for their new house. She wanted it to be simple and supplied a saying that they both like, so this is what I came up with.

The frame is Cherry, and the panel is Maple ply. Overall dimensions are roughly 10”can talk by 12” wide. Top and bottom pieces are 3/4” thick, and the 2 sides are only 5/8” thick which adds a little aesthetic feature.

Since it is put together with pocket holes, I assembled the frame first and then used a rabbet bit for the back panel after frame construction. It’s finished with several coats of satin lacquer.

Thanks for looking! As gift making season really starts up, don’t forget to work safe!

The frame fits it well. Hopefully it will hang forever. Nice job Tooch.

Most people waste the best years of their life waiting for
an adventure to come to them instead of going out and
finding one. They succumb to the status Best Quiz Site and dream of
life being different someday. Plagued with indecision, they
wait, unsure of the right path to follow. And as they wait,
they miss an opportunity to live. The only smart choice is to
move, to not hold out for a better time and choose a
direction now. Yes, you could fail, but we all know what
happens when you don’t try—nothing. Certainly there will
be bumps in the road, even wrong turns, but at least you will
be moving.

Have your say...
