New Sign

I finally decided to work on a wooden sign for one of my co-workers. She had been asking for a long time and I promised her one for her birthday (we share the same day). I’m a few years late -yes, I do mean “years” – and she has never let me forget that. Anyway, I knew she wanted a sign for her yard with her last name and house numbers on it. I also knew that I wanted to incorporate my love for stained glass into the sign. Several different ideas came to mind, but I never could figure out how to put it all together. Then, one day, it clicked.

I had the design idea and was ready to start building. Here’s where my hopes were squashed. I just couldn’t get things to fit. I spent a week in my shop trying to come up with a better way to get it to hold shape and still look good. It caused a lot of frustration (mainly because I’m a perfectionist when it comes to these things). Another co-worker helped me figure it all out (thanks go out to him). After so much effort (plus some trial and error), I completed the project. I’m not really sure if she liked it or if it will be impressive to anyone.

All the time that went into it really seems like overkill since the design ended up being so simple. But, I can definitely say that I learned some things that will be helpful during my next wood working project.  Either way, I’m pleased with how it turned out and that’s what matters in the end. Let me know what you guys think!
