  1. Freehand

    This is my second sign that I have done. I don't have templates so I have to do my lettering freehand. This sign says "Cead Mile Failte" which means a hundred thousands welcomes in Irish. The wood is cherry and the finish is a semi gloss lacquer. Two holes have been drilled near the top for hanging.
  2. Double Sided Saloon Sign

    I was commissioned to create a double sided sign for the Number 10 Saloon in Deadwood. The sign is made of Redwood and measures 18 by 39. After staining the board I carved out both sides on my CNC, since the sign is longer than the carving area of the bed I had to make my registration marks to...

    I am designing and renovating our old park in our small town. One of the upgrade projects is to replace the worn out welcome sign with a new one. I donate my labor on these projects, and a local non-profit picks up my material expenses. I designed the new sign in Sketchup. I used a...

  10. Router carved walnut sign

    This is what I consider to be my first real project (since it's actually leaving the apartment). Everything before this was just practice.

    I made this sigh for a guy who wanted to hang it up out side of his camping trailer. I made it from an off cut of poplar with the bark still attached. Sorry I didn't get a pic of the back. It was about 24" long and 8" - 10" high and 2" thick. I did all the letters free hand with a router...
  18. Ammo box

    I needed a lockable box for some of my ammunition, so I figured why not make one! A couple of hours in the garage some left over pine and here is the result. The box is all pine with 1/8" saw kerfs to make it look like the slats on a crate. The paint is camo green out of a spray can. I used my...

  20. Honey-Do Sign redux

    So this was a replacement project for my wife's shop that I had originally made 2 years ago. At the time, I used vinyl lettering for her logo and then polyurethane over top. I didn't realize that the outdoor location of the sign would get pummeled with sun, rain, snow, and crazy temperature...
