  • A new sign

    I have just finished making some new signs to add to my range of things to sell at the craft fairs. The one in the middle is made from ash and the other two are from slightly spalted oak. I have enclosed a photo of one on its own in oak. I just love the beauty that lays within the wood when we have finished preparing it for the scroll saw and then seeing the grain come alive when we apply the finish. I designed these using the drawing app in microsoft word.

    I too love the looks of the wood once the whole job, including the finishing, is done.

On red oak its a much darker grey black. To get the best out of ebonizing i.e. the blackest coloration the wood needs t o be...

        Might be. I am going to be making a sign using oak plywood and I think I may want the background a tone other than the oak. May explore other veneers as well.
