|Production Method||I run a one woman woodworking shop where I create one of a kind pieces. I buy all my domestic woods from a local sawmill here in my hometown. I buy my lumber rough and mill it myself using planers, jointers, bandsaws, tablesaws and many other tools within my woodshop. All of my wooden signs are are made one at a time. I select the fonts, the materials, the paint colors and finishing techniques. Each letter or detail within my signs are cut by hand on a scroll saw. I do not use lasers or big CNC machines, just good old fashioned woodworking! After cutting out each letter, the pieces get sanded one by one. Then I prime them, sand them again, and spray a top coat on them. After this process is complete I either begin distressing them for a rustic look or leave them be for a glossy, shiny look. All of my frames are made from my milled wood and joined with miters. The backs are fitted into the frames and then the letters are lined up and glued on to the backer board one at a time. Finally, after I am happy with the paint job, The entire piece gets sprayed with shellac to help pop the colors and protect the signs.|
