Custom wood sign progress pics. I am at a point now where I will build up another layer to achieve my 4.5” thickness. I have located wood similar in grain / color to the layers directly below. Im sure there is an easier way to do this, but here is my clamping… Note for anyone attempting odd clamps like this. Always do dry run first. Trust me, Ive learned the hard way :)

Thanks for looking! I make custom wood signs for any application: business signs, home signs, cabin signs, etc.

I know what you mean,. After all the blocks are coated with glue is not the time to see if they all reach where you want them to. Dry runs are always worth it!!

Also make sure your clamps will do the job. I used some crappy quick clamps once and nearly had to redo the whole thing because I didn’t realize that the glue set too quickly and the clamps weren’t up to the task.

I’ve enjoyed seeing your signs, Scott. Great work!

If your not careful the glue up can really get you. Ask yourself if you are ready at least 3 times and then apply the glue.
