Well, last night at a one day assignment I ran into a guy that is looking for a wooden sign. I gave him a business card and told him to give me a call and i would look into it. He wants a routed sign. I am looking at starting to do signs. In my area there seems to be a call for it. The local Woodcraft store has asked me to make some signs with the signcrafter that I bought from them.

Hopefully this may be my ticket

Good Luck!!

My first attempt at a hand held router sign was a dismal failure. It’s not for me.

Go for it, and let us know how is goes. I think that you will find some inspiration here from other L-jocks.

If you can learn to make them efficiently, signs aren’t too bad to make. It takes practice….

Good luck on your adventure…
