Show Letters!!!

Ahhh HA!

I am receiving letters now!

I have Karens & Ricks.

Oh yeah maybe we'll make some....



(BTW I made the glass case sofa Table out of found wood around this 100 year old house, so I do have some skills )

I have all the lumber for the frame and it's irritatingly in my living room staying warm. I need the outside air temp to get a little warmer so my saws will cut correctly. Right now the cold is Bogging them down so I can't get a clean cut, looks like this weekend I'll be able to hack 'em down to raw length.

Then I'll do the glue up and the Routing and Carving Back!



That is quite a bit of Lumber, more than just for the Sign.

There is also extra there for mailed in board w/o a frame. I'll be making frames for stock size boards as well for anyone needing them.


This thread is going to turn into a Scrabble thread!

Re: Show Letters!!!

So cool to see the letters showing up. Tapecat you are the man for doing the frame for this. I can't wait to see it come together. Looks like an ad for cash now. I am glad to see mine made it. See you at the show. Rick

Re: Show Letters!!!

This sign is going to be so cool. Thank you so much for doing this.

I think, if it is all right for those of you doing so much of the work, that we make it an annual show. Hopefully by next year I will be able to afford the trip and I can attend the next show.

Somebody better take a million pictures and share them, especially a group picture, of those who could attend, under the sign.
