  • 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.

                I got my notice and and I paid for another year. This year I had to make the following change.

                Hi Tony - I built a wedgie sledge pretty much immediately after you first mentioned it. It worked fine within the capabilities of my homebuilt table saw but I quickly realized that to get the best out of it I needed a new saw, hence my recent acquisition.

                Hi planeur - thanks for the reply.

                Just to be clear. I wasn't suggesting that you change your original sheriff, rather that you apply some of the ideas for future projects. Nevertheless you can see the difference in the modified version

                I can definitely see in your Heron that...

                Glad to hear it, Rolf. It shouldn’t be so harrowing just trying to do the right thing, but good that you didn’t give up.
