Remember the good old days? Yeah, I know, I can't remember what I had for breakfast either, but I couldn't resist making this sign. Let's just call it a Biography on a Board —the short version. (My life has many stories ... some of them may even be true ... but none fit a such a small space.) :sarcastic:

Seems to me many of us were children of the 60s. Those who are probably enjoyed the most libertine time in modern history. I remember some of it, and it was a hell of a good time, with or without sawdust being involved.

I like a Jethro Tull song title, "Wounded, Old, and Treacherous".

In my youth it only took a couple of beers to make me bullet proof and invisible. :sarcastic:

nobody is that old...

old is............

when you’ve been there and done that, but don’t remember what that was.
when you knew when the Dead Sea was only sick.
when almost everything hurts, and what doesn’t hurt doesn’t work.
when the candles cost more than the cake.
when you hear your favorite songs in an elevator.
when there is nothing left to learn the hard way.

The wood is just a piece of cedar fence board, Barb, that I sanded smooth before transferring the pattern (with wintergreen oil). Yes, I used a 60º bit for the text. The image was carved with the SC-50 fine detail bit. The edge was chamfered with a 45º bit. I paint the edges so the sign visually has a frame which, to me, looks more finished.

Looks amazing... I like it. I've scalloped mine, but no paint because it would show any uneven cuts. Totally awesome job. Nice going! Can you post a pic of the sc50?
