  • Name Plate

    Made this for my son, who got promoted into a management position - complete with a real office that has a door. So I decided to make him a name plate. Used MS Word with TEAM SPIRIT truetype font. You can download it for free. You have to fool around with it a little since it has an annoying underline that gets in the way a little. So play with the kerning and spacing to get the capitals and lower case to line up. But it is a real nice script to cut. The name is walnut that I harvested and dried in my basement. The back is sassafras. Finished with BLO and some wax. Turned out pretty nice.

      Good job. I do a few nameplates and I've used Teamspirit a few times too, but I thank you for yet another take on the theme.

      I hope he knows he has a great dad.

                Among other things. I was surprised to see 190 proof. Everclear tops out at 150 proof here in NC, but I have seen it at 190 in Georgia.

                What was the old college recipe? Equal parts Hawaiian Punch and Everclear? You pour it into Mayo jars, put the lids on and store in the original boxes....

                I saw a "practice pattern" to learn how to operate my saw. I decided to print out what I thought was a fairly simple pattern that would cover all the cuts and possibly have something at the end. Please tell me that the pattern lines are really just suggestions. Improvisation is acceptable....

                Those are great! I would be interested in seeing how you box them.

                BTW, Everclear is banned in some states but still available in others. I also recently saw another brand of 190 proof at the local ABC store here in Gibsonville, NC. (I did a quick Google and found the brand is Diesel)
