At a customers request to mimic an image he saw, I made two wood slab guest books (slabs supplied by customer, which was a challenge to line up). Then made some quick stands and pen holders for each one.
How pretty! Love the natural slabs!
What a great idea and execution!
Awesome guest book! What kind of pen are you using?
It’s not my wedding, but I believe he’s using a ball point pen.
Great idea - is he going to have you do a trace/engrave of all the signatures when it’s all done?
Oh gotcha, I don’t know why I assumed you would be supplying the pen. I didn’t know if it took a special one to write well on the wood.
That’ll be one of those, “oh, crap” wedding moments lol
Bring Sharpies just in case
Thought about that, but not a risk I’m willing to do
He tested on a scrap cut off
Try it on the back. In fact you could redo the whole thing and the back would have the engrave version and the front the wet signatures. They could pick which side to display.
Turned out great … Definitely a change from the everyday guest book!
That’s really special. Definitely a keep sake to be displayed…not just stuck in a drawer somewhere like mine is…lol
hopefully not having a wood burning pen plugged in next to the “book” (yikes) Beautiful job though and a really neat idea - something to treasure !
Those are sweet! I love practical projects.
