Now with Christmas around the corner, I'm always thinking of gifts I could make for my family.. My brother owns a web design business which he calls "Tydeesigns" Ty, stands for his name, Tyler. Then, 'Tydee' stands for his clean, attractive websites which he designs, and designs.. you got the idea. I thought it would be fun to make his logo for his office. So I pulled the projector out, with his logo projecting onto the wall where I tapped up two pieces of large card stock paper, I traced the logo.
Next I got to planing down the boards to about 5/8ths inch thick.. in pine. I then began to carefully cut out the letters on the scroll saw. Just today I sanded the letters and finished painting the back board. (which I still need to trim to size once I know the exact space needed for the letters..) Tonight I painted the letters with acrylic paint and then gave a coat or two of a 'gloss' lacquer. Tomorrow I have just a little more work to do before it's time for wrapping!
I hope you all enjoy! and maybe you could do the same similar project for friends or family!
