Project Information

I know, I know…..........the Bengals haven't been the best team in a while, a long while. But 2009/2010 has just got to be the year of the tiger! I've been making these signs for years out of aspen. They are cheap to make, fun to build, and people eat em up. This is the only one I have left and I hang it in the garage shop. The lettering is done freehand with a plung router and a core box bit and a cove bit around the border. Since this one, the first done 4 years ago, I have made a templet for the lettering that makes it all straight and reproductable. The black areas are 1/8" recessed to make the painting a snap and in person make it "pop" a bit. All comments and critiques welcome, except from Steelers fans. (Just Kidding) GO BENGALS!!!

Ben,
Beautiful sign. I'll be happy if the Bengals can at last hang in there through October LOL. BTW is that sign hanging at Dave Dennis? I work for a company in the building next to it.

Hi Mike, thanks for the praise. I actually put sign on my Jeep I got at Dave Dennis to take the picture. I didn't even realize it was in the pic until you said it, lol. As far as the Bengals go, If Carson can keep healthy, we'll make playoffs. Thanks for looking

Ben, Great sign. We won't hold it against you because it's the Bengals sign…...and I'm not a Steelers fan. I'm from SC and pull for the Philadelphia Eagles fan, so I never seem to offend anyone.

Being a Bengal fan is much like being a Cub fan. Very long apart from anything resembling anything good.

I know, I'm a Bengal fan.

As a long-suffering Bengals fan I'm reminded of a common phrase here in Southern Ohio:

"Go Bengals! And take the Reds with you!" ;)

Carson Palmer is a great Quarterback. Mike Brown sucks as an owner.

As a Cincinnati native I watch the Bengals, I want them to win. They can snatch defeat outta the jaws of victory.

But I hate the Browns.

They let Whos-your-mama go. Housh was a great reciever. Chad is no longer a factor.

But with the new season…. I shall watch again. One must have a dream.

Greetings Ben,
That's a beauty. Very satisfying project/item. You have met the wonderful criteria for success: " cheap to make, fun to build, and people eat 'em up." It don't get much better than that!

Starting way back as a snot-nosed kid I'm a long time Jets and original AFL fan since their inception.
The Bengals have as part of their heritage one of my all-time favorites, football genius and innovative pioneer, the great Paul Brown.

Good pickup on our guy Coles. He will help.

All the best, except of course when we meet last game of the season.

Peter
