Default A very useful sign

I had many suggestions to watch old dave 100 videos on my st8 answers thread. They were informative. Instead of buying his stencils and lacking a CNC I cut them with a scroll saw. On this sign I deviated a bit from his method. I pre-painted the sign silver and white in the appropriate places and then masked of the sign. I then laid out my stencils and sprayed their outline as Old Dave does. After routing out the background and painting it green I peeled the remaining masking tape and touched up the silver and white. BTW I am a Philly boy thru and thru

Great sign. You did a really good job on it. How did you cut the oval.

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

I made a shop oval for my meat platter cutting board http://www.routerforums.com/jigs-fix...ing-board.html I have made larger and smaller ellipsis's from it. I used one to mill the outside. Then I used a smaller one and a bushing to route the inner ring. Used the outer ring as a guide for laying out the letters.

One of the best signs ever. I really like the color.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Well done, Bill. The colors and carving look great. Be sure to send a photo on to Eric at Makeawoodsign.com. I'm sure you'll get selected for Sign Carver of the Day on a future show.

How about your new Quarterback from my town? I just hope it doesn't go to his head like so many other celebrities.

Two reasons not to worry
1 When coach called Wentz to tell him he was the new starter he was goose hunting.
2. During bye week he flew home and bagged 8 pt buck with a bow
