Ever since I built this shop I wanted SOME kind of sign above the door – something that said “This is my Wood Shop!”
What better sign than the image I use to brand all my work?
It only took a couple of years – to get started, that is. ;-)
In truth, I did this over the course of a weekend a couple of weeks ago.
Background is some VERY figured cherry – insect damage, knots and minor cracks standing proud.
Foreground and edge banding is black walnut, cut on the scroll saw at a thickness of around a half of an inch.
Finish is a coat of danish oil followed up by two coats of spar varnish – although it never gets rained on, I thought “why take chances?”
Entire piece measures around 18 inches high by 20 inches wide.
It looks really nice and has already raised a few questions from visitors, etc…. :-)
