I had got into making several various sizes of Cedar signs for some friends, and got to where I enjoyed the challange of making them . The problem came up when I was ask to include several types of additions,,adornments as to their interest out to the side/s of the lettering. I made a sketch of my own design of a duplicator, put it together, with just a sad marginal results (last picture). Shopnotes Magazine came out with their idea, it sure looked a lot better than mine, and with that magazine rep. I decided to make one and give it a try. Imperative on making one of these,,,make sure that every connection, that call for it to be, that that connection is 90 degrees to the companion piece. All most all of them,,,,VERY importain !!!!
It has worked out very well, naturally after some practice,,, the picture is a couple of the first try es using a hobby stores templates. Still though no where as precise as a CNC machine, nor near the cost.
Question; has any other woodworker here about’s ran into a problem I have had. After I get all enthusiastic about making a jig/fixture/machine, then take the time to build it, and afterwards I run into…..Where around here, do I put it now ????
