I finally have more time to work on my hobby so I have been trying to get a bunch of signs made up to restock my display wall. Have actually sold some last week before they were even painted. I guess they wanted a do it yourself project.

love them! My favourite part is the detail you put into the edges – it adds a lot of dimension to them.

They look great! I would never have thought it was freehand work.
I, too, would be interested in any tips for painting inside the letters.

That is great for freehand routing, were you using a small router?

The “Gone Fishing” is my favorite. If only it were true.

I’d also like details on creating/painting the letters.

Thank you for the nice comments, and the knot for the sun? I didn’t even notice that until you mentioned it but you are right, it does look hot. As for painting the letters I guess you could say I cheat, :) I don’t have a steady hand, as hard as I try I can’t stay in the lines so I give up and just sand off my mistakes when I get done. I use a regular size, 1 1/2 horse router with a 60 degree v-groove bit. Here is a little more information about how I do it.

Thanks for the blog!

You need to edit the URL for the link. An “about” got added to the end of it.
