  2. Signs, Name Plates, Buisness Care Holders

  8. Sign I ruined~~

    So, I ruined this sign~ I need to switch how I paint/ finish these. This would have bee a decent sign, but I tried to use ink instead of paint…..and it bled.

  9. Signs~~Ruined and Refurb'd

    Signs I made for a Karate fundraiser. I messed them up by trying to spray them with a water based paint (Liquitex) and just about ruined them. I ended up 'route planing' them over and basically starting over. If I didnt commit to doing these, I would have prolly scraped them all~ I sprayed the...
  10. Sign I re~did cuz I messed up the 1st one~~ this is the project

    So, I did this sign because I did one that I royally messed up and it made 'Top 3' on here. (here is that link) I did 2 signs in response and I think that they turned out very well. This one is about 6"x 26"~ish long. I think it is hard to see on the pictures, but I used Gel Stain (emory) on...

  13. Annual door decorating contest at my school

    It's that time of year again for decorating. After a tie in last year's competition because of a technical victory, my students were ready for a good old fashioned "snow ball fight" if that's what it came down to. This year's theme was decorate by subject and you must creatively use the DECA...

    I love to do custom orders, it is always fun to see what the customer can think up and then trying to find the appropriate pictures to match their ideas.

    A few days ago, Bill sent me a Private Message challenging me to make a small wooden box using glueless joinery. This is the result. The joints are held together with pegs made from bamboo meat-skewers. I soaked the bamboo in water overnight so that when pressed into the holes drilled slightly...
  20. Workshop signs

    Over the weekend, I made a couple workshop signs for my shop (it's actually a garage for my cars but it does sound better to call it my shop than my garage, doesn't it?). Here's one of them. I'd like to make a huge sign like the New Yankee one may be like 14" x 20") but until one day I have my...
