  1. Welcome Sign - Xmas Present

    Here is a welcome sign that I made for my grandmother for Christmas.
  2. 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.
  3. Hand Carved Welcome Sign

    Here is my second welcome sign that I hand carved. I really like the shallow gouge from lee valley. I use that one more than any other on these carving projects. Of course there is a fair amount of straight chiseling, and knife work as well. I finished this with a couple of coats of...
  4. Welcome Home! Traditional Version

    The latest thing to roll out of my woodshop. Finished size is approx 19×7 inches. Walnut and Oak. One thing I do to make cleanup easier is to cover the walnut that will be showing in blue tape before gluing so I don't have a bunch of glue to scrape off. Then you can put the glue a bit...
  5. Welcome Sign

    Made from a six foot long cedar fence picket. Took me about 12 hours on my cheap little Wen scroll saw, mostly in that pineapple (the design for the pineapple came from somewhere online, can't remember where I got it). Had a heckuva time swinging that long of a piece around on the scroll saw...
  6. Entrance Welcome Sign

    This welcome sign is made from Angelim Pedra. I made the lanterns from some old landscape light parts and incorporated them into the wood hexagon lanterns. It has a removable front sign panel that I can interchange seasonal greetings. I made a dozen or so signs on a small CNC router.
  7. Hand Carved Welcome Sign

    Here is the hand carved welcome sign that is out front of our house. I had to include a couple of Sparrows since that is my last name. It is made of pine and stained and coated multiple times. It is in a protected area outside, protected from both the sun and rain. Hopefully it will hold up.
  8. A "Welcome" sign for over our front door.

    I'm quite new to Scrolling, having bought a saw only about 5 weeks back, but thought it would be nice to make a welcome sign to go over our front door. I designed the pattern using the word art on my laptop, then added the small decorations below. Both parts are made of exterior grade plywood...
  9. Segmented Cigar Pen

    I finished this pen tonight. It's a platinum cigar kit from Woodcraft. The woods are jatoba and maple. I used a CA/BLO finish. There are over 200 individual pieces used in creating this pen. I've stopped keeping track of hours, though past pens have taken 6-8 hours to complete. This pen is...
  10. Walnut Candle Holder

    This is a very simple project I made for my in-laws last Christmas. It is from a book on weekend woodworking projects Use a single scrap of wood and saw a series of L shapes. Drill candle holes in one end and through holes for the dowel in the other end. Make a knob. Glue in dowel. Finish...
  11. Hand Carved Welcome Sign, Vinegar and Steel wool stain finish

    Here is my latest hand carved sign. This time I wanted to darken the pine, so I used a vinegar and steel wool stain that I had mixed up about 5-6 months ago. I did perform a test on a piece of scrap and it produced a wonderful brown colour. Here you see how the stain reacted with the white...
  12. Welcome Sign

    Hey all, This is something small I have been working on as a present for my brother-in law and there brand new baby Niko. It was done on the scroll saw using 1/2 in. plywood, wood burned the lines for depth, painted, hand-painted lettering (something new for me), sanded and a quick wipe of stain...

  14. Rolling "Welcome Center" Cart with Backlit Sign

    My adult church "Connect Group" (Sunday School class, small group, etc…) recently moved to a different room. We no longer had a tiki bar prop to use as a surface to fill out name tags and register visitors. I decided to build a cart that could be rolled out into the hallway on Sunday mornings...
  15. Welcome, Grow, Believe

    The construction company I work for had me make these as a gift for the church we were working on. This project took 13 weeks at 40 hr. a week and I was able to make these on company time. This project is the largest of all my work to date. This isn't as much woodworking as it is carving but I...

    Next Leg of the Journey Throughout my life, I have had incidents where fate comes in and seems to give me a push in a direction that, in hindsight, seems to be where I needed to launch to begin the next leg of the journey. A few days ago, I responded to a Dremel update on Facebook and won a new...
