Here is my (not quite complete) submission for the Make A Sign - sand - dimensional woodworking BB.  I will edit and "report" when it is finished.  This is my report for this week's BB Club project.

To document the completion of the BB, I verify the following requirements:
- Sign is made from a 2x8 that is over 3" long so it is 7.5" tall by ~40" wide
- Some means of hanging or posting the sign - three screws will attach it to a signpost or tree in the space between RV & Camp
- No treated wood - It is dimensional lumber
- Lettering is burned after being routed
- must finish with tung oil or linseed oil (need to acquire some oil and finish project)

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following photos:
- pic of the wood and your burning tools
- pic of the sign getting oiled
- pic of the sign hanging or posted

Staff note (Mike Haasl) :

Looking good! It's a lot easier on the evaluators if you just post once when you're done with the project. Or if it's a picture heavy or long drawn out project, create a thread elsewhere on the site to store your progress and then do a summary in the BB thread to keep things concise. Thanks!

Approved BB submission
Here is my submission for Dimensional Woodworking - Sand - Make a Sign.

I actually made two signs.  The first is the RV Park then a second for the Treehouse for the Brand A Place BB.
Below, I have a picture of the leftover 2x8 with the Pencil Torch (my Wood Burning Tool) and the piece of wood I started with.


To document the completion of the BB, I provide five pictures including the following:
 - pic of the wood and your burning tools
 - pic of the sign getting oiled
 - pic of the sign hanging or posted

Staff note (Rob Lineberger) :

These are unquestionably great signs. It took me quite a while to realize that you used the torch to burn the letters after you routed them. So I'll echo Mike that keeping all the pics in one post helps us out. In any case looks great and this is certified!
