Im not a sign maker.
« on: October 25, 2021, 08:49:04 AM »
But I made a sign yesterday. Used a barrel lid, an old board, a scrap of plywood, and a vizio quick connect instruction sheet out of a tv box to cut a free hand tree template. Even found a blade in the tool box for the 200 yr old craftsman jigsaw. I also added a solar light we had here. :)

Look good, you could get those solar spot lights that stick into the ground and point them at the sign for night time? Edit:nvm I just looked again and see one on top of the post! Well done.

Looks great! Pretty sure I have that same jigsaw. :D Cut out the corners of a counter top a few months ago to put in a sink and I was holding it very loosely as the metal case started to heat up. The anticipation of getting zapped was strong but fortunately never happened. 
Saw you tomorrow!

Ted, I think meant to say he is not a "Stoned Mason' obviously he does pretty good with stone, either flat or round. Please don't make any more suggestions, or the next thing you know he will have ashlar powered pump with a fountain and alternating light colors at night, some fish, and maybe some guy with a sandwich board and big foam rubber hat.
Nicely done (again) Jeff. Let us know how many folks pull into your drive thinking you are running a high end spa or restaurant.

Im not a sign maker but I have built a sign or two.

Here is the latest.  The frame is 6x6 and 4x6 white oak   The legs are 48 in the ground per building code here.  Nobody wants to hit this sign with a vehicle- I suppose if the do its a death wish.

😂 the Chrysanthemums arent visible!  Yes we have a planter around it with yellow and purple Mums. 

I am not a stone mason!  So our planter has some high dollar cross ties around it.  But I do have lights!
