Ghost Sign

I had no idea of what to build for the most recent challenge . . . however DW came to the rescue with this . . .

Photobucket

She found it here LINK

I had a couple of pieces of 8ft long by 12” wide rough sawn pine that I though would be excellent for this project.

I started by cutting off a piece for the “sign” . . . 26” to be exact. I broke out the planer and smoothed out the remainder of the board for the ghost. There were no measurements so I had to eyeball it.

I built it in stages . . . finishing each piece and building from that one for the next piece. I made the head . . . the upper hand . . . left side . . . tail . . . and right hand.

As you can see I stepped the tail so that it would wrap around the front of the sign. I then proceeded to round all the corners of the ghost using drum sander on the DP.

To do:
- a little more work on the sign
- finishing touches on the ghost
- painting
- putting it all together

Pretty cool. Any hint on what the sign will say?

This is really cool. A project that requires you to ‘think things through’ with an original idea and step forward with every confidance that as an original work you get to define ‘how it’s done’. I like the tail wrapping around the sign, 3 dimensional. Keep us posted on your progress.

Tks Russel & AMan.

R – no idea on the sign wording. Maybe “this space for rent” :-)

AMan – the tail transition could have been smoother, however once it is painted I’m sure no one (but me) will notice.
