First go round…

I’ve always liked making things but have’t had a lot of time up until recently.  I decided to make an address sign for our place so dug out a couple 6×6 rough cedar posts, milled and planed it then biscuited it together, routed out some numbers, painted and clear-coated it then mounted the finished product.  There are quite a few glitches on this project; dimensional post caps for non-dimensional wood; a few router slips (thanks to a scare one day from Manuel!) and a few slightly warped boards (clamping in one direction but forgetting the other) but overall it turned out OK.  I may do another one this winter to improve a few techniques.  I also have a rowboat to build but that, as they say, is another story.
