Can you use a stand alone sign in your home? Perhaps for a special menu, welcome, wi-fi password notice for guests? In this post, we're sharing how we created a couple of scroll saw projects for an event display. These were specific to our needs, but can be adapted for use in your own home.
Every scroll saw project starts with a pattern! Steph created the letters for our sign on Canva.com, although you can use any graphic program that allows you to customize the size of your finished project. I use the same method to attach the pattern on all my scroll saw projects. Cut a piece of contact paper to fit the wood you're using, apply spray adhesive, and then add the paper pattern. What this does is allow you to remove the pattern without any sticky residue left on the wood.
Steph also designed this paper sign in Canva.com. We decided to order two copies--one for the scroll saw pattern and one to use on the finished project. Here I'm marking the width and depth of the part of the sign that will stand in the holder. That Milwaukee framing square is coming in so handy in our projects. It's lightweight which I appreciate.
The use of that angle iron proved to be a genius idea of Steph's. The sign was designed for an 8 foot wide table. Well, surprise! When we got to the event, the table was actually six feet. We had a little panic moment, but realized the sign would still match up to the holes if we overlapped the angle iron! It worked and it fit the table perfectly!
