Progress on the pub sign is slow but steady. Just the Raven and fox to finish up. Hoping to do that this weekend.
Just signed up for Vancouver Maker Faire 2012 today!!
Spring is here, the sun is shining and I’m working in the shop! Life is good.
We’re starting to gear up for Vancouver Maker Faire 2012. First project to finish off – the Fox and Raven pub sign! This one has been sitting on my work bench for far too long.
I finally started the painting this week. Here’s the progress so far:
You may notice a sign making beginners mistake (I’ve made several) painting before gluing on the letters. I thought it would be easier to paint this way but now I’m wondering how the hell I’ll get the letters to stick.
I should probably be posting a bit more often, so here is a video of a recent test print of Mr. Alligator. The trick here is the crazy speed, and also the vibration of the pulleys. More coming soon!
