Default Getting a few done with SO many to go!!!

Here's a few of the ones with color and stain from the 4th, and one I started back at Christmas The aloha sign is an example of using old/bad wood conditioner, or when you stain a piece of wood that's been in your shop for awhile and you didn't condition at all. On that sign, it was fine, as it almost dressed it up a bit, but imagine that look on my brother In-laws sign.... NOPE! The dog plaque is a leash/key rack and will get hardware added.

Nice looking signs/plaques. If I tried that, I'd never run out of wood for my firepit.

LOL Rick. The frame I'm working on is try #4. I just can't get what I'm looking for. It's an oval picture frame in a cross with "In Loving Memory" at the top and the pets name at the bottom. The design is pretty kewl. I just can't get the lettering to cooperate. Looks so amateur. I can't bare to send it out like that.

I think they are all a winner.

Great work, Barb! I like the rustic look of the Aloha sign, but I see what you mean about not using that wood for the other sign. That's some nice detailed paint work. I'd have to have a CNC paintbrush to do that!

Nice sign work Barb. Freehand lettering looks very good to me. Not sure I'm steady enough to do that anymore, so you can be in charge of signs.

Thank you. I have like eight more signs to get cut today if I can. It wasn't the wood so much as the lack of conditioner. It's a perfect example of what can happen when you use no conditioner or in my case, a can that should have been discarded.
