Trotters Ridge Entrance Signs #3: Signs Completed and Installed

07-30-2013 11:28 PM by Luke | 0 comments »

Here is the finished product. We added the white paint to the parts that needed it with a small roller. The old signs were made from Cedar and had been up something like 20 years. They were almost completely rotted away but you couldn’t quite tell until we removed them and they were basically an ant and termite farm. These should last at least another 20 years, only needing the paint kept up with when they start to look bad. We paint them with common exterior grade Behr paints so retouc...

Trotters Ridge Entrance Signs #2: Signs are sandblasted and background color is applied

07-24-2013 11:55 PM by Luke | 1 comment »

This is what the signs look like after sand blasting with the grain frame. Then the green background color is sprayed on after several coats of primer. It takes on a grained look like wood. Next step is the lettering colors and borders. Thanks for looking.

Trotters Ridge Entrance Signs #1: Boards received and processed for blasting

07-10-2013 05:52 PM by Luke | 2 comments »

Here is a new project at the shop for some sandblasted 3D HDU signs for a subdivision entrance. You can see the 5×8’ board ready to be cut down to size for the two smaller signs. In order to sandblast them we have to first cut a rubber negative mask that will keep certain areas from being blasted away. That’s what you see on top of the table and later stuck to the boards themselves. Next step is the sandblaster which I won’t be able to get pics of but it’s a prett...

Routed Sign Making #3: Wood removal with various routing bits

02-07-2012 11:08 PM by 3DBMe | 15 comments »

Now that the letters are outlined with a stop-cut we want to ‘rough out’ the material inside the letters. I use clamps to hold down the wood so that there is no movement while routing. The clamps are repositioned as necessary for a clear work space. 01 Clamp Wood ————————————————————————————————&#...

Are we ready yet?

09-03-2008 04:14 AM by TheKingsTreasures | 1 comment »

We have been working real hard trying to get ready for the craft show coming up on Friday. I made a bunch of signs and Terry made benches to take but today he called me at work and said that we were not going to have anything left to take to the show. He sold 3 signs, a table and 4 benches already this week. I only have 2 days left to try and catch up. Maybe I’ll just have to take orders like I did last time but I was trying to have a good selection of different signs to choose from. I ...

Step by Step

In response to the many requests for information about how I do the routing on the signs, I will give a step by step below.When I get an order request the first thing I do is pick out or make a sign blank in the approximate size the customer requested, then I go to my computer. I have a program on on my computer that will print out banners, I use Print Shop. I can choose many styles of lettering and adjust the letters to any size that I need to fit on my board. When I get everything how I th...
