Default Back into sign making

Hi Everybody,

A few more signs but not real happy with some because of the paint bleeding.

Very nice signs, Graham. A year or so ago a lot of folks on here were making signs, including me. They are a lot of fun.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I usually give my signs a quick hit of spray shellac before painting to help reduce the paint bleed. Especially with pine. I haven't found the bleed to be much of an issue with cedar.
