I had an order for 8 of these. There name is Terhune and the bible reference is a blessing. She picked these up today and ordered 2 more but thankfully they don’t have to be done before Christmas. These each measure about 7 inches high and 16 inches long. It was a busy week trying to get everything done but it sure helps toward the Christmas shopping.

They look good. That must be one big family!

Very nice work. Do you burn the text in or use a router?

I use a router on everything, using different size bits for the smaller work.

Nice looking signs. I also just looked at your home page. There are some great looking designs there. Thanks for sharing, can’t wait to see others in the future.

Not to sound “preachy”, but I’ve always liked those verses. The verse concerning a parent’s charge to guide their children has hit home since having my daughter 2 years ago and a son last year. On another note, nice project.

Very nicely done! Did you use a routing template or just a drawing template and routed teh letters freehand?

I use my scroll saw to make routing templates for letetrs and other such.

Great looking signs. That is one place that a CarveWright would have really saved you some time. I’d say that you could have done each sign, start to finish, including the carving and shape cutouts, in about 20 minutes or less. You have done a nice job on them though, they came out very nice.

Thanks for all the kinds comments. I just use my computer and print out a template using the banner program that came installed in my computer. I can adjust the size and style of letters to fit the board and the spirit of the sign. I find a lot of silhouette and outline patterns on the internet and use my printer program to adjust the sizes to fit. I transfer the finished design to the board using carbon paper then just use my router and follow the pencil marks. I have been doing this for about 5 years now and when I look back at the earlier photos I can see a marked improvement in design, style and skill. Always hoping to improve.
