Default Newest Stock for My "Shop"

Last fall, as I announced, Ken found a craft consignment shop up near Amanda in Clare, Michigan. This weekend they're having a sidewalk sale. My stock up here has gotten low, but money being short, Ken said to just make a bunch of welcome signs with the cedar boards I had in the shop. So, Welcome Signs we made. All of them were made from the dog ear fencing I had in the shed. Wood conditioner was put on them after the signs were carved (since they had been in my wood stock for quite a while) as well as after the ink, showing off the brilliant colors in some of them. The top three still need poly, but the rest had conditioner then poly. No stain needed on these (of course. ) that's the good thing about cedar; it has such great coloring, nothing extra needed.

Thanks everybody. The heat has hindered the sale a bit, and the poly is having a hard time curing, but we spent almost 3 hours at the sale and met some super nice people. No sales, but too hot, and I'm sure they'll sell soon. Need to get home and make some more.
