  1. Office Bar Sign - Conrad's East

    Hey guys! Here's a sign my friend contracted me to make for his dad's office bar (office bar at his last job was called "Conrad's" and he moved to a new job, so the office bar became "Conrad's East"). His drink is Crown Royal, so there's a Crown Royal logo out of Purple Heart, Padauk, and...

  3. No Soliciting Sign

    The adventures in free-hand routing continue. For a while I had a kind of ugly "No Soliciting" sign I'd made with a white oak veneer over some scraps of mahogany with the milling machine, but it was kind of ugly. Also, we had some punk say "... but I'm not soliciting, I'm canvassing!", so we...
  4. House Name

    This is for our retirement house on a lake. We are 1/4 mile off main lake on Poplar Creek…so we named the home "Up The Creek". Cut from 1" thick padauk and finished with tung oil. This is the first time using this wood and I like it, deep and rich color and easy to cut. Thanks for looking!

  8. Time spent in the shop

    I have not had a chance lately to spend much time in the shop, though I am trying to remedy that.

    Here is a project that I made for our new washing machine. I took a piece of quarter inch yellowheart and made transferred a clean/dirty design onto it.
