The Perschall sign is cedar 12"x72"x3". What would a sign this size sell for?

Depends. On your location, your market, etc., etc., etc. Something like that would sell for a lot more in some place like Los Angeles or New York than it would in my home town. And if you go 10 miles east of where you live and sell it, it might go for less than if you went 10 miles in the other direction. See? Depends.

However, you might do better selling on-line. Never tried it myself, yet. Heard good things about it, heard bad things about it. I have a friend that makes some nice wooden boxes. Most of them he sells thru consignment shops, but several times a year he goes to a craft show and sells, and he gets a few orders from people who have bought his stuff before. He's not making a fortune, but a year or so he bought a nice sailboat, about 30-35', and donated his 20 something foot sailboat. His boxes make him enough he could do that - and he's now retired and only works part-time at it.

Some days, the supply of available curse words is insufficient to meet my demands.
Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Nice signs, Robert.

A little more information on how they were made would be useful.

Robert nice work.
Which brand of templates are you using and how have you found them?

Cheers, Kerry

Really nice signs Robert. I wish I had more time for signs!!
And Kerry, I would be willing to bet he uses no templates. All free hand.
