Hey guys!

I know I have been gone a while, but with me getting a new job, and working on a few projects including this shed for my gardening equipment, I have been mighty busy.

I Anyways I plan on Glow Forging a cool sign I can put above the door of this bad boy. Any Ideas?

Let me know what you think!

Here is the finished product (and my thumb):

Welcome back…nice shed😀

Looks great! :relaxed:


#4

Congrats on the great work!

Just in time before the rain this week. Be careful this weekend.

I love it! I think your daughter did most of the work though from the looks of it lol. and yes, the humid heat here is merciless

I just made a cool sign from pallet wood and a piece of 1/8" plywood. I cut out the letters with the scrollsaw (Glowforge would be better and way easier) and then put the pallet wood behind. I’ll see if I can find a picture.

It’s also on a shed.

Nice little garage for the yard/garden tools/equipment!
Wish I had room for one.

Nice scrollsaw work.

I like the style on that - every garden shed should have one, IMO.

Chuckle! We would need one that said “The Cathouse”. (They took over the potting shed about ten years back.)

I hear @dan has a cool sign for the White House Office of Science and Technology. Put that sign up on the shed. Will totally confuse the neighbors…


#12

looks great! I’m considering building a third before the rain falls again :stuck_out_tongue:


#13

That would be hilarious! :smiley:


#14

:joy:


#15

How did you get that gorgeous rust finish on your plywood??


#16

You Tube… :wink:

I’ll see if I can remember the layers - Chrome Spray Paint, Burnt Umber (Acrylic) with Sawdust, Burnt Sienna, a light coat of a red stain. finish with a clear exterior spray.


#17

Thanks! It looks great.


#18

Seeing as you have a daughter plan ahead and the sign would be like “Boyfriend’s Body Storage Room”.

I really like this idea. :slight_smile:
