Chicago CTA Sign for our old stop when we lived there


#1

Made this for my wife for Christmas. Not crazy, but second major project I tried with Glowforge. Really simple.

I’ve had this idea ever since we moved to Ohio from Chicago a few years ago. Originally I was going to try to use a scroll saw to cut out all the letters, but there’s no way my (not so great) scroll saw skills could compete with the Glowforge haha

It’s about 5 feet long. The larger letters are about 6" tall (the capitals/full height letters) and the smaller letters/numbers are about 2.75" tall.

So cool!

Now that is sweet. Great way to show sometimes it’s simple things that touch us. Very well done.


#5

Really classy! I’ll have to think about doing this for my Blue Line stop (River North on Grand Ave).


#6

I’m in Chicago. Want me to just steal the real signs for you?
