I was somewhat overwhelmed by the emails I received asking if I would consider making and selling my rustic number samplers. Then I had a request to make a "welcome" sign in the same style so here it is...
I followed the same process as my number sampler...drawing out a pattern, tracing onto various types and thicknesses of wood, cutting out the letters with my scroll saw, sanding, painting and staining the wood and the cut-out letters. I cut the "W" from metal and attached it to the wood background using rivots and the letter "C" is a chalkboard. I thought it might be fun to incorporate a chalkboard since they are so popular right now.
I made a frame using more weathered lumber and attached it to a 1/4" plywood background using an air nailer. I then inserted the letter pieces, like a jigsaw puzzle, inside the frame using wood glue to secure to the plywood.
Thank you to everyone who has left such nice comments and thank you for visiting! Have a great day.
