Routered Beaver Sign

I made an Oregon State University Beaver sign by routering and then painting. This is the first sign I have painted and boy was it a challenge!!! I learned some tricks to hide boo boos by using a sharpie marker 🙂 In this video I try using lacquer thinner to transfer my logo and verse to the back, but it didn’t work out so well. Maybe I oughtta try it again sometime. I am not sure if I will, but I know I will definitely do some more painting on signs!!!

2 Peter 3:9 But God is being patient with you. He does not want anyone to be lost, but he wants all people to change their hearts and lives.

Routered Believe Sign

I had another printing of the Believe sign I had made earlier, this time I made it bigger and had glued it to a board all ready for the scroll saw. Then, since I have learned this router technique for making signs, I thought it would be cool to try and router this sign instead. I also use the SC-50 router bit for the first time to inset the lettering for the verse. I need to practice a bunch more but I sure am enjoying making signs!!!

Acts 16:31 Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved.

In today’s episode of OPP, Other People’s Projects, I will be sharing from Don Ogle, Mike Turner, Sergio Marsala, and Terry Krauter. I also got a gift from Willy Melendez! He sent me a mug with my Cy’s Corner logo and a picture of the beloved pooch Johnny on it! I use it for the first time in this video. Below you will find social media places for the folks that were featured today, if they have one that I am aware of anyway.

New Cy’s Corner Sign!!!

We had some cut offs from the Red Alder table we made so I thought it would be cool to make a new Cy’s Corner sign. So I transferred my logo to the wood and then routered around everything with the profile bit. Then I removed the bulk with a straight bit and painted the house, sun, and background. I put a verse on the back, and I need to put this verse on a plaque in my shop because it is really a goal to work the best I can on projects. I sanded it all up and sprayed everything with a glossy clear acrylic.

Colossians 3:23 (NCV)  In all the work you are doing, work the best you can. Work as if you were doing it for the Lord, not for people.

I made this project from a Spectrum Glass pattern. Here is the link to their free feather pattern. Feathers Pattern by Spectrum Glass 

I was planning on making an intarsia but the pieces don’t really touch a whole lot so it is just pieces and not really an intarsia. I added an awesome and curious verse, it is Psalm 91:4 He will cover you with his feathers. I love to think about being covered by God’s feathers. I really hope we get feathers too one day! This project was really quick and it turned out way better than I expected.

I also share one project that I made a few years ago. Thanks everyone for sending your projects!!! I look forward to seeing and sharing more projects from folks!!!


Red Alder Table

We spent a week in Prineville with the goals of setting up the shop, making a dining room table, and making a bookshelf for the office. We did get a few shop things set up but we spent more time working in the shop than on the shop. It was really great! We were able to make the table and the shelves too. I imagine setting up the shop is going to be a long and continually changing process anyway. 🙂
