Jesus Routered Sign

I tried routering differently than I had been doing it. I used a ¼ inch round nose bit to outline Jesus and then used an SC-50 bit to outline the smaller words. With more practice it could look nice and crisp, but I like the message of the sign, so here it is. 🙂

John 14:6 (NCV) Jesus answered, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.”

Questions about this verse? Email me 😊



Intarsia/Segmentation Horse

I found a stained glass pattern of a horse and used it for an intarsia pattern. Since I cut most of the head and the mane out of the same pieces of wood it is called segmentation. But I did use other pieces too so that would also make it an intarsia! I used walnut, zebra wood, wenge, and a small piece of pecan.

The Link to karalstudios.com goes to the website, which appears to be gone, but there is a facebook group: Karal Studios Facebook 

Here is the original pattern on my pinterest page: Horse pattern on Cy’s Corner Pinterest

Job 39:24 (NCV) With great excitement, the horse races over the ground; and it cannot stand still when it hears the trumpet.

Benches for the Red Alder Table

We started on these benches in February and worked on them when we were in Prineville on weekends. This video is about making the benches, seeing snow in March, watching a one antlered buck chewing, and Wally and Gibbs running up the driveway. It was nice to get the benches all done and we really like how they turned out. And they are Red Alder, just like the table.  

Vanco Welcome Sign

Our friends Mike and Becky came over to our house in Prineville for the weekend! Mike and Husband worked on a dirt moving project in the yard while Becky and I worked in the shop making a welcome sign!!! They brought their lab named Blue and she hung out with us in the shop when she wasn’t exploring with Wally and Gibbs. Becky wanted the sign to match some aspects of their logo, making the W look like metal studs and the O looking like a screw head. So with that in mind, we got on it and made the welcome sign!!! This video shows what we did to make that sign!!!




Oregon Sign

I saw a sign similar to this when I was watching Make a Wood Sign when Eric was sharing pictures of what other folks have made. So I put this together!!!

This sign making thing, man am I hooked. I did start a little intarsia though, so I am dabbling in both!!!

Isaiah 52:7 (NCV) How beautiful is the person who comes over the mountains to bring good news, who announces peace and brings good news, who announces salvation and says to Jerusalem, “Your God is King.”

Three Signs, and a 4th

I was asked to review a few products from Arteza so I thought I would make some welcome signs and use the products when I make the signs! One of the products is self adhesive vinyl. I have a Cricut vinyl cutter machine and I have been wanting to make some signs using vinyl lettering. I have boring black vinyl in a roll, so this was awesome to get 42 12×12 sheets of all different colors from Arteza! So I used the vinyl from Arteza and cut the letters myself so that all the signs would be the same font. I also make a 4th sign using the Cricut just to see how it would look! The other signs were made from routering and scrolling. I used the paint brushes from Arteza to touch up areas where the black paint got sanded off, and I also used the brushes to clean off the overflow of glue. The brushes worked great for the touch up painting but were a bit too small to clean the glue up quickly. I finished everything off with walnut danish oil and I like them!

Here is a link for Arteza.

Here are links for the vinyl and brushes I used:

Arteza Self Adhesive Vinyl 12X12″ – Assorted Colors (42 Sheets)

Arteza-Detail Paint Brush (Set of 15)

Here are the verses, one on the back of each sign 🙂 :

Hebrews 13:2 NCV Remember to welcome strangers, because some who have done this have welcomed angels without knowing it.

Rom 12:3 NCV Share with God’s people who need help. Bring strangers in need into your homes.

1 Peter 4:9 ESV Show hospitality to one another without grumbling.

Romans 15:7 ESV Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.
