Before entering the house, a welcome greeting will change your mood. The two posts of 1×2 is useless for other projects due to its warpness. I dont want to waste any wood. Recycle is my lifetime adventure. So here is a sample of how the scraps can be. The lettering was done by routing and painted with gold. The wood was a Mango board 1 inch thick from the backyard of my brother’s house. The board was exposed to weather for long time and I thought it is already useless. Not anymore…

On the last picture, a new style of composition becomes a reality. I found an angel carving from plaster and a bamboo pots with ‘WELCOME’ letterings. These two were bought in different times. I made a backround of a house to compose the two components. Everybody who sees this composition wants to have one, but the source for the angel and bamboo craft are no longer available.

Very creative, I like the way you use wood that most would throw away. Well done, I like these a lot.
