Just got around to making a new sign for the shop. Nothing serious just a fun little project I was working on while making another cloverleaf “Cricket table” (Thanks A1Jim). Made from reclaimed Barn Pine 3/8 Maple Ply I had lying around the shop. A couple of coats of a satin tinted poly, a little sanding, and called it done.
I think its a handsome sign but I’m a little prejudiced…..what do you think…how’d I do?

I really like this sign, if I did not only have 220mm to the ceeling I would make one also.
Wonderful!

NJ, that’s a real nice sign that you’ve made for your shop.

Cool looking sign. With the way the light is in the first picture could not even tell it was made of wood.
