House number update
I guess by now most of you know that I do not think highly of FedEx, and to combat their excuses they couldn't find my house, at least, I am going to make a house number sign. Had gotten an idea for a demonish face from the back of a playing card. Pic included. Couldn't come up with a design I liked, so checked some far east demons. And found out I don't like demons or devils. So, decided to fall back on some designs I had made a long time ago for small banks. Had originally planned on getting a piece of u tube, welding it to an old vehicle wheel, and bolt the design I decide on to that. Then found out the older son has some black iron pipe, decided a stand made of that would be loads better, because then I could use French cleat sort of hangers, and easily hang, or change, designs. Figured out a six piece design stand. Then four piece. Then three piece, then two piece. Keep It Simple Stupid. Makes hanging and changing them very easy. I'm thinking I will hang one out there, until the get used to looking for the drive with the Wizard (or whatever) at the end of the drive, then change the design. Originally I was just going to use the owl design I had sketched for my coat tree design, color it, then blow it up. But decided, what's the fun in that. At present got just the owl - in several different color variations. One Wizard, also very changeable. Then the fairy. But also have a variety of other usable designs I haven't tapped yet. The number fonts I will use will likely be Oliver, funk regular, or Frankenstein. I love woodworking.

Some days, the supply of available curse words is insufficient to meet my demands.
Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
