Hi All, just wanted to post a pic or two of my new sign post. I’ve been shy about putting it up because,, I have a good job but I wanna work for me. So here is my sign post. Now I gotta get me a sign. I really wish I could find me a big ol circle saw blade to hang from it. Whata ya’ll think. :? I’m thinking a 52” blade would look good hanging from here.

:D [color=darkblue][b]Well, here it is. The sign is pretty much done now. I tried to just stencile the letters on it, but that didn’t work. I ended up routing the letters out and painting them in. The sign is 2’H X 4’L X 4”T.

Been wanting to hang a sign myself.

Nice job. Couldnt do that here due to high winter winds.

A 52” blade would get my attention that is for sure. Your sign will look good.

Maybe you can make a wooden saw blade to hang underneath your existing sign? That would let them see the name as well as relate it to sawing.

You should be able to find a circle blade if you keep your eyes open. There are a few smaller ones on ebay right now.

I think Harold’s idea is awesome! And it could be any kind of saw blade – what about one of those two-man lumberjack jobbies?

Harold, your idea is good and unique and I second that or third it :) Anyway really nice sign guys, I made one too, it says “Custom SawMilling” on a 10-12 foot slab of 2” thick Pecan…. just too darn heavy to pick up and mount….it is on the “List”..for the tractor/front-end-loader….I was thinking a really big ole ripping circular sawmill blade or one like Eric suggested the two-handed type would be cool…bolted in over the diagonal brace would look neat and catch attention to your custom saw-milling service…definitely get the point across :) Ya think…

Be well…

yup.. looks good to me!

My neighbour found a sawblade in the woods and had my mom paint a picture on it for him.
I’m 5’ tall and the saw was almost as tall as me
