Moai Mike - Those came out really nice. I wondered what the finished product would look like.

Here's my first project since attending Derek's awesome class. We needed a little Hawaiian Christmas so I drew up a Mele Kalikimaka sign.
Here is the pattern & the drawing transferred to the board.

Here it is completed.

Here's a few close -ups.




I hope to get it painted & stained this week.

I like how you made the consonants tall and the vowels short. That's a good looking sign.

Hope its ok to post here, I used this thread and your (MM) recommendations on routers and bits for my first try at routering.

I couldn't make this event obviously, so used the pics and info as sort of a long distance learning thing.. lol

Here's my first attempt at some door trim.

layout


kinda straight...


torched, brushed and clearcoat


top piece


if this is the wrong place to post these, let me know and ill delete the post.

Thanks for the knowledge sharing Monkeyman (and others)

Cheers
Darren

Roxanne,

Nice job!

What is the name of the clear material, that you and Monkeyman, spray over the stain? Its to seal it and give it a little bit of shine.

I haven't checked in here in a while.

Roxanne, your sign is awesome. I like the flower.

Dagg, Your moldings rock. I'd to see them installed.

Here are a few things I've been working on recently.


A fish design to complement a glass bowl I found to make a lamp. The fish are craved on both sides.

Here they are painted & stained.

Here's the finished lamp.

Here is a panel design. I made 3 for another lamp.

carved & burnt.

Painted & stained.


After all this work I feeling good about how I am progressing with my work so thought I'd try something a little tougher.
Here' s latest sign. The Endless Summer.

The design tcopied to the board.

Half way done carving.

Here is the finished sign. Burnt, painted & distressed.

I am hooked, can't stop.

I never grabbed a 1/4 shank 60 degree bit, so a few days ago I went to Rockler to check them out. Being used to paying no more than $20 for a bit, I experienced sticker shock at the $59 price tag for the one they had in stock! I had one of their 20% off coupons in hand, but it was still too expensive to justify buying even after the discount. I noticed that the tag on it said that it was a "sign making" bit. A couple pegs up the rack, I spied a 3 bit "sign making kit." It had a 60, 90, and U bit in it for $69. I used the coupon and got $14 off. The kit 60 bit is a little smaller than the stand alone one is, but it's still fine for the stuff I'd be using it on.

Just thought I'd let you guys know about this in case you're looking into getting the 60 bit. Might be better to get the kit if you do not have any bits yet. The profiles in that kit and maybe 2 other smaller U shaped bits are about all I've ever used on all my routered pieces so far.

Buzzy Out!

I just saw this thread and wen through the whole thing. Amazing work everyone! What a fun day. I'm so jealous.....

I really need to try routing again. I find it so hard but maybe I need a new router. Mine is hard to control. It's a Craftsman and not a plunge style one.
