Mr. Woodsy’s company closes every year during the last two weeks of the year. This past year he was more bored than ever! So bored, that he finally tried out his scroll saw that he got Christmas of 2009! He asked me to print out a font (CACpinafore) and phrase that I liked, and he would give his scroll saw a try!
He basically cut out the white paper and pressed firmly with a pencil to outline the black lines so that it would transfer onto some scrap pine that he had laying around in the garage! *I’m sure there is a better way to do this, so if anyone has any tips… please feel free to share!
He cut the pieces out in sections although on his second time around at the sign he was able to make it all one piece!
After he cut out the wood he then glued all the pieces together. Then he gave it a quick sand; however, after it was painted you could see where it was glued. Anyone have any good tricks with this as well?
He mounted the “Believe” onto a scrap piece of wood, so it would be able to stand on its own.
We both agreed to give it a nice coat of spray paint, so I picked out a metallic silver spray paint.
He then sprayed a few coats of the silver spray paint.
Here is the finished product on my shelf with other Christmas decorations. The Christmas decorations are now down, but the Believe sign is staying up year round. I’m not sure if I’m not feeling the silver either… might paint it white or green. What do you think?
