I have needed some signage for some time so I finally took time out of my busy schedule to create one. I printed out separations and used some trust spray adhesive to attached to some 1/8IN Luan. Some of the smaller letters required multiple attempts as the longer I worked with the scroll saw I noticed sometimes it had a mind of its own. Lots of sanding!!

Here is another location you can view better resolution photos of the above:

My next step is I am going to build a small display case to enclose the sign and allow it to hand in the workshop and to be carrier to woodworking classes I teach for signage. I will have a glass from on the case and put a leather carring handle on the top and make a stand so it will sit at an angle. Like a kickstand. The case will also protect it from dust and other debris as most of the time it will hang in my wood shop.

Thanks for stopping by and looking!!

Great sign!!! Will this be for outdoor use? If so what are you using to finish it, I’m making a similar project but not quite sure what to use to finish it and waterproof it.

Again, great job!!

Thanks for all the great feedback everyone. I will probably not place this outdoors. It turned out to nice for that. If I did I would simply use an outdoor poly or lacquer that is water and weather proof.
