Thread: Sign for a small farm

  1. #1

    Sign for a small farm

    This sign is about 40" x 20", sandblasted Western Redcedar. I enjoy doing pictorials that have stuff silhouetted in front of a sunset, but rarely get the opportunity.... most want something more detailed.
    Since painting time is minimal, these can be VERY profitable.

    Did you make your own sandblasting mask? If not, where did you get it?

    Bill, I use Hartco 425 sandmask. Most sign-supply companies will have it. It comes in a 10 yard roll. If you can't find a supplier, call Hartco & they'll tell you who has it near you.
    Sometimes I cut it on the plotter, but mostly I apply it to the glued-up blank & cut it on the CNC,. I use a 30* .125" V-bit to cut it. Profile cut "on the line" set to .030" depth.
