My grandfather (Pop) was always the man who could fix anything. He had a tool for every job. When I was younger I could remember rummaging though his tools on a daily basis. When I became old enough to turn my own wrench and I had my own projects I began to inherit many of his tools. In the last few years his health began to rapidly deteriorate, so for Christmas this year I wanted to make him something so that he knew that I always remember where the tools I worked with came from. This carved sign was made with the Ryobi plunge router and diablo bits. Thanks for checking it out!

  • When my father was still alive he use to build all kinds of plant stands, shelves and stuff like that and he loved to do the wood burning style. Brings back a ton of memories. Nice job....

    • Thank you!  We used to do a lot in this style.  I love the way it turns out, you'll probably be seeing a bit more of it in my projects!

  • We absolutely love that you commemorated your Pop's legacy with this beautiful sign! Using tools to build, make, repair, and maintain is a great skill and tradition. Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

    • Some of the most used hand tools in my box were passed down through the generations.  I fully intend on keeping that going.  People will always remember you for something, might as well be remembered for the things you've made and the work you've done!

    • So true!
