These were done for a custom order. The tractor sign is for an old farmer and the other is for a sportscar nut. I used a SharkProPlus from Rockler to do the carving but the edges, milling, painting and finishing were all done with traditional modern woodworking equipment. I dont have the steady hand and envy the real chip carvers. The tractor sign measure 38 inches by 12 inches (96.5cm x 30.5cm) and is made on cedar. Some of the red color was lost due to the finish used but it is going on a barn and needed to be protected. The car sign is 12×18 inches and done on poplar. Poplar machines very well and seems to be the grain pattern people are looking for.

Nice sign. I have a tractor like that one. International M, belt pulley, dual front wheels and fenders been taken off.


-- That was not wormy wood when I started working on it.

Tractor? That’s an Aeronca, isn’t?

-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

Randy – I had to modify a picture of a Model AM into an M, but the Old Tractor club said it was just a decal swap between the two.

Sawdust2 – Yes that is an Aeronca Champ.

Helluvawreck – Thank you, the farmers daughter was completely tickled with how the cedar sign came out.

Have your say...
