Probably close to ten years ago I took a day class on router use at my local Lee Valley Tools
. Shortly afterwards I bought a router and around the same time, a signmaking template kit. I've used the router but, until recently, not the kit. I figure it was high time - I found a suitably rustic piece of wood in our shop stock and made a sign. It's far from perfect but it's perfect for us!
Started off on the left edge of the board.
Next step - cut the board into two equal lengths and add the names - John (that's me), Dawn (that's DW), Emily (DD) and Bella (the camping kitty).
Last step - the hardware.
Looking forward to displaying it for the first time this coming weekend.
