Had 3 days off this weekend and no wife around.
So I built a couple off cooler stands for the coolers laying around my garage.
The hardest part was cutting out the logos with a coping saw. “DEFINITELY” going to get a scroll saw this summer.
These were pretty easy to make.
I used outdoor Varathane for the shine.
Spray painted the logos.
No stain was used.
All made from pallets I picked up at work the previous weekend.

Impressed, and I bow to your dedication. I looked at the pics before reading, and just knew you had a CNC. What did you use for the Bears head? My BIL is a crazy Bears fan, would be nice to scroll out something like that for a gift.

Nice job, thanks for posting.

Believe it or not, I used a coping saw for both logos.
I printed the logo from the internet, and made it bigger on our copy machine.
Then drilled a bunch of holes in it and started sawing.
It was a very tedious thing to do.
I did it on 1/4” Baltic birch plywood, sanded it with 220 grit paper, primed and spray painted both logos.
Now I really want to get a scroll saw, that should make the process much faster.
Thanks for looking!
