Project Information

This is a little project I just finished. It all started when I was a kid. My dad made a sign to hang at our parking area up at camp. For years that sign was the first thing we saw turning into camp.
Well my folks sold the camp some 50+ years ago and the sign kind of faded to memory.
So, around 25 years ago when my dad retired, they were cleaning house getting ready to move to Florida, and the sign turned up. It brought back so many memories I wanted to hang it at my house. Turns out it was too fragile to hang up so I made my own version of it. After some years the weather had taken it's toll and I brought it inside to clean it up and repaint it. At the same time my wife wanted a small version to put our house numbers. So here's some pics.
My dad's original sign


This is my version of it. The frame is white oak the rest is finnish plywood. Our name is blotted out for privacy , but you get the idea.


Thanks for looking

Luckily I'm not anywhere near an HOA! 1600 ft. down a private road, out in the woods is me.
