Default My claim to woodworking

My name is Brent and I have done a wide variety of things for a living, but I have always reserved my woodworking as my pass time,my hobby, my retreat from all the frustrations of every day life. I enjoy spending many endless hours of time in my shop working on some project and completely loosing track of time.

I have many different kinds of tools and as time goes on I will share them with you all. But the one tool that I am extra proud of is the one that I built my self. It is a 108" belt edge sander that extends to 120" belt and as time goes on I would like to share some pictures with you. I also own several different routers including a king Canada 1/4" edge trimmer router, two 3/8" craftsman routers, one makita 1/2" plunge router, one 1/2" powerfist plunge router but the favorite one I own is my 1/2" Hattatchi soft start varriable speed plunge router. I use it for all of my big projects including as an under table shaper router.

My present project is a western style fence that I am building in the front yard of my acreage and I would like to router some words into an 18" x 12.5' x4" plank header. I want the letters to be some where between 8" and 12" depending on how they fill out the space and I would like to rout the in some form of writing design, I'm not sure what yet, but what I'm looking for is some router letter jigs or a program of how to make them or a site where I could down load the information. If some one can help me that would be great.

Hi Brent.

Welcome to the router forum.

There is a special section on sign making, which may help.

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

Hi Brent. Welcome to our little corner of the 'net.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Hi, Jerry I'm not sure how to interpret that but someone once said we should learn something new every day, when you are green you are growing but when your ripe
your rotting so I'm not sure how close to stupid that makes me.

Hi, Brent. I take it you're in the Great Canadian West somewhere. I'm in Niagara, and enjoying woodworking and this forum. Welcome a board!

Cheers,
