Routered Picture of Ron and Tik

I have this great picture of my step dad and his puppy dog and I have wanted to make something with it for quite awhile. I asked Charles Dearing a few years ago to make a pattern out of it and I am finally now trying to router it. I think it looks pretty cool. I also put a verse on the back that I thought fit very well. It is Proverbs 17:17 which says, “A friend loves at all times…”

Routered Pet Portraits

I started this project using some pictures of Wally and Gibbs that I had cartoonized using an app on my phone. I figured it would be easier to router their pictures if they were drawings. I routered them and then added some other things to make a sign along with their portraits.

If anyone would like to commission me to make a portrait of your pet please send me an email and we can chat about it.

Job 12:10 (NCV) The life of every creature and the breath of all people are in God’s hand.

Sisters, Oregon Sign

There is a little town near us called Sisters and it is known for its three mountains. I wanted to make a sign with those three mountains and so I grabbed my router and made one!

Psalm 90:2 (NCV)

Before the mountains were born and before you created the earth and the world, you are God. You have always been, and you will always be.

Cy’s Corner Sign Intarsia Like

I made the routered sign for my new shop and ended up not really liking it. So I made another one to replace it. This time I made it intarsia like, so the house and the sun of my logo are what I enjoy doing the most! I took down the routered sign and put the new sign up in its place which is right next to the sticker map in the new shop!

Proverbs 16:3 (NCV) Depend on the LORD in whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.

 

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.”

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.”

Make a Wood Sign

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.

 

Routered Navy Sign

I found a picture that I thought would look really cool as a routered sign. I had some friends in mind, a husband and wife who were both in the Navy, and I was making this for them. This is the biggest and most colorful sign I have made so far. I used the profile bit, the SC-50 bit for the little inset words, a round nose bit, and a flat ended bit to change something I wasn’t liking. I used acrylic paint for the colors and black primer. I had a lot of fun making this sign!
