New campsite sign

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.

Sounds like a retirement business to me... I see them at county fairs...routing custom signage on pine boards, staining them to look like hardwood and selling them for big bucks.....

Go for it...
