    This is a sign copy carver I made over the winter. You could actually copy other things I was only interested in making wood letter signs. The top measures 36"x60", yep its big, the measurements rail to rail are 34" wide by 36" long. I had the frame welded up and I used solid 5/8" rods for the...

    Here are some of the things I've done for others (as gifts, mostly.) The clock I did for my mother in-law, and unfortunately she broke the top of the wing and didn't save the broken piece so I could fix it. The black, red & silver shoe was a picture my daughter gave me to make a key rack for...

  7. Sign Making
    Hello everyone. I'm fairly new at this, but I want to make some signs and have been looking at the milescraft Signpro kit and the Rockler guide set. Rockler letters lock together without rails and seem a lot simpler to use. The pictures show them snapped together and then taped to the wood. Has...

    Looking at purchasing a Shark but the question is how do you make a sign wider than the 24 inch bed? I assume one can do it in stages but how easy is it to do with the V-Carve software. Thanks Bob Tidmore Beaver Island, MI

    Hello forum members. I found your site while searching for information on a router project I recently tackled. I am making routed signs from alphabetic stencils (Rockler's 4" set). My first sign was a modest success; however, I managed to chew through a couple of the plastic stencils and was...
