Hello to all members, many moons ago I learned the art of tattooing, after several major
back surgeries, I was left with an uncontrollable tremor in my right hand….not cool with maintaining
straight lines…..wood became my choice material for getting that creative mojo thing going.
These pieces are made from plywood and hand painted with acrylic paints.

Thanks for the positive comments….....As for doing good business, if I had a dollar for every sign I’ve made and given away,....I’d be filthy rich by now….lol!!!! There’s something about making something with your own hands and soaking in the look of surprise and appreciation from the recipient’s.

Hey Greg, these signs are put together in layers, meaning that they’re 3 dimensional…..the heart is one piece of ply, the scroll banner is another piece of ply glued and pinned to the heart, the letters are cut out of ply also and glued on top of the scroll banner…...all in different layers to give that cool 3d look…..
My pictures of the pieces are’nt the best to show this detail.
Regards, Jay
