  • Sign for parents' cabin

    I actually made this sign for my parents' cabin in 2008 but just saw it again this weekend for the first time in over 5 years. Something that has always worried me about the sign was that I glued the border trim on around the whole perimeter and left nothing for expansion/contraction. In this case at least, it doesn't seem to matter as those miters seem to be about the same as the day I made it.

    The sign is about 14" square and made of white oak. My wife helped me design the stencil which I printed out onto stiff paper, cut out with an Exacto knife, and then sprayed with black spray paint. Then it was all covered with spray on poly.

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.
