JOAT OK, and yet a few more. This is pretty much how I do research for a lot of my projects. Image searches using, FUNNY WATCHDOG SIGNS, FUNNY HOUSE SIGNS, FUNNY WOODWORKING, FUNNY WOODWORKER SIGNS. Damn, just thought of another one, and I'm sure that will lead to more. These searches are for non-CNC users only by the way.

Honest, I research stuff this way. FUNNY NO SALESMEN SIGNS, FUNNY KEEP OUT SIGNS, FUNNY DANGER SIGNS, FUNNY DONATION SIGNS. Now I'm going to do some researching for myself - but not signs.

I got those from a search, using the phrase, UNWELCOME SIGNS. Loads more, even better. I'll be making another search, as soon as I come up with a good phrase.

OK, these should keep you busy for an afternoon or three. Search for images using phrase: BEWARE OF SIGNS, NOT WELCOME SIGNS, FUNNY HUSBAND SIGNS, FUNNY WIFE SIGNS, FUNNY KID SIGNS, FUNNY PET SIGNS. I'm sure I'll be coming up with some more later.

But who wouldn't be tempted to make signs, after seeing such classics as DON'T FEED THE BANJO PLAYER, ZOMBIES UNWELCOME, and OH CRAP YOU AGAIN?

OH! Brian, I WILL be making that one! LOL

I'll post it here somewhere when the design is done.

ONE of these days I WILL get my video done of my start-to-finish on my technique. Every time I go to start it, Ken yells at me, telling me I'm not prepared to do that yet

JOAT I like the dragon sign the best. If I were doing it I would likely put UN above the Welcome. Don't really care much for unexpected visitors. Might have to make one for myself - Trespassers will be shot. Survivors will be shot again. Of course, the liberals probably would complain about that. So may just make one that says Beware Of The Rattlesnakes instead. You may be able to tell, I don't make signs, but thinking of starting.

Ooo, ooo, ooo, I'm gonna start making signs. Decided I'd look at some signs to see if I wanted to give it a shot. So did a search for unwelcome signs. Loads of inspiration. Definitely want to be a sign maker. Hehehe

OutoftheWoodwork Yeah, being stuck in the house can give inspiration.

I started a couple designs. Simple ones, however. I know I did two new welcome signs, but can only find the one. But I have one I did some time ago (and actually cut it, but I may have to re-cut) and that's the one with the dogs. The Dragon Welcome sign is sitting on my kitchen table (impatiently) waiting to head out to the shed to be cut.

I've also been sitting here watching videos getting ideas on how to make the cutting of sign shapes go quicker. I've always used my scroll saw to cut them. I knew there was another way, I'd seen it, but wasn't real sure on using the process. Well, Ken is getting antsy about getting this workshop on the road to travel during the summer months on the weekends, so I need to seriously consider using my router to cut the shapes. I went and purchased the spiral up cut bit, I still need to get the "guide bushing" is it? That goes in the base center? And I got a 4x8 sheet of MDF on the "will call" cart at Home Depot for about $6 to make temporary templates till I can get the HDPE which is proving to super hard to get around here. The MDF had some crushed edges, and my thinking was "I'm gonna cut it off, anyway, so why not? Six bucks? You can cut it down to fit in my truck, right?" And home it came. It, too, sits impatiently to be cut into its' shapes.

There are advantages to that also. I haven't been in my shop for awhile, the cold weather is hitting me worse than it ever has before. So, yesterday was sketching up some hook designs for my coat tree project, and I decided to figure out a cut list. Revised it a couple of times, and figured maximum pieces from the pieces I use, which boiled down to three pieces, which I thought was great, but then it hit me that if I make one more cut, I wound up with four pieces from the same size of wood. That is going to give me a lot more pieces out of a sheet of plywood.

If I'd been in the shop working, I seriously doubt if I would have thought of that.
