Decided to make this sign and post for the cottage to replace the old weathered and cracked one. Used cedar for the post, a half lap joint and bolt to join the post pieces. Used a router to do the letters, and added a border using miter joints. Finished with a few coats of helmsman exterior.

Enjoy

Nice sign! I really like the letters. What font and bit did you use?

Cool. Is that a solar light on there?

Search letter fonts on google and you will find some really neat ones. Can not remember which font it was, but try to pick something that will work with the router bit you have so you can stay inside the lines. I used a v-groove bit with the letters.

Yes, just a simple inexpensive solar light.

Have your say...
