Street Number Sign

I took apart an old redwood fence years ago and saved some of the better rails. I use them to make street number signs as gifts for good clients. I do a free-hand numbering and I sometimes carve a little on one end. This piece had a better sap wood side so that is why it’s not “red” redwood. ;0)
