This is my first upload. I have been playing around with painted and routed signs for the last two years. I’ve been learning as i go. This is a sign made on cedar and given a vintage worn look.

Well done! Your technique is effective. It looks vintage, has a nice distressed look.

Pretty easy. Used left over cedar board, painted with red outdoor paint (small plastic craft paint sold at wal-mart) traced the wording, painted wording with a paint pen, let it dry for about five-ten minutes, spray some thompson weather sealant and then some light sanding, wash it to remove wood dust and let it dry and your done.
