Hi,


Here is a couple more signs I did free hand and I added some colour and a frame to one of them.

Nice signs. The lettering looks very sharp.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Hi Cherryville Chuck,

Thanks for the compliment. I had to finish off the narrow bits of the letters with a fine chisel because I broke my 3.2mm straight bit. And I also had to use the fine chisel to do the flower, bee hive, bee and the line. Only thing I am not happy with is the colour I used on the face of the bee I should of left raw.


Cheers Graham.

Hi kklowell,

The first one took me about a half a day to do the letters another day painting the letters.
The second one took about a week to do. As I was doing the narrow bits of the letters I broke my 3.2mm straight bit. So I had to finish off the letters and the art work with fine chisel.

Cheers Graham.

I thought you must have taken some time with these as they are very nicely done.
