Recently we were asked to build some custom signs for a wedding coming up this summer. The first sign was made of an old wire spool. Letters were hand cut via the Ryobi 16 inch scroll saw. The second sign was made from a pine backing with hand cut letters over the top. We choose a thicker piece of wood for the second sign to give the letters more of a floating effect over the burnt backing.

  • Beautiful job and such a creative use of a spool. The grain and holes make a very interesting sign back. Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Thank you!  We brought out the natural beauty of the wood by first burning it.  WeatherWash stains and finishes was kind enough to send us some Pined stain and varnish to then coat the spool with, giving it its unique finish.
