I made this sign as a christmas present for a friend of mine. He bought a bandsaw mill and we have been way to busy ever since. The sign is made of poplar and finised with a spar urathane over a cherry gel stain. I basically grabbed a pencil, level and a belt sander to make it flat. Then I used a plunge router and went to town making the letters. I just used a black acrylic paint to fill in the letters. As for hanging the sign I used 5/16” chain and screwed 3/8” eye hooks as high as I could in the tree and on the sign. That’s about all there is to it so if you have any questions or comments please let me know.

It will look even better in the summer will the full trees in the back ground.
Your black lettering with the light colored wood stands out and shouts look at me.
Great Christmas gift.
