My brother-in-law is awesome and is celebrating a big birthday and anniversary, so we worked on a signpost to commemorate places they have lived.
When I sat down with this my requirement was that it could be mostly pre-assembled and fit into a usps box…
So I designed a little puzzle piece joint post with a square cap, so it will only take 3 screws to assemble when it arrives.
The whole project is 1/4 in baltic birch, which doesn’t cut through in areas but better than cutting by hand!
The “driftwood” signs were pre spray painted boards, then masked, because painting after didn’t look as good…
The shapes of the signs were drawn by the kids, traced, and became all of the driftwood pieces.
My wife worked on the locations and arrows from their home.
I glazed it at the end with
which I have never used before, but if it yellows maybe it will look even cooler.
gps would be cool too.
Thanks for reading!
