That looks great Barb.
Thank you. Unfortunately, Herb, the one that got gouged still sits to the side. This is the second sign, that I had cut only because I wasn't happy with the way the lettering turned out with the first one. I hope to play around with the other one this weekend when they say our temps might get higher than the teens. I'll post the result. If it works, I'll owe Mike a pan of brownies :lol:Hey Barb you are back in the groove again. That is what makes you better is fixing the unsuspecting booboo's that happen so fast. I make them too,and then fix them so they look intentional, and people compliment you on the uniqueness,
On the first one,can you just make a rough edge on top, on top and bottom, or all way around with the scroll saw?Thanks everyone Having issues with the wood on the other ones I cut Sunday evening with the ink/paint bleeding. Gotta find out what Ken and I are doing differently that's making it difficult.
No, this is cedar. I stopped using the "white wood" (cheap pine) and went with the more premium when I do, in fact, use pine. Two reasons: less knots, and nicer grains.Barb.........was it by any chance the "white wood" that some of the big box stores sell? I've had a couple of experiences with that stuff being awfully thirsty.
