Chainsaw Sign

Post by levesquea » Wed Apr 06, 2022 10:00 pm

Here's a Sthil chainsaw sign I made for a local guy that sells Firewood. The man is 82 yrs old and never stops cutting wood and that keeps him in top shape. i buy like 12 cords per year from him and I decided to make him a sign because people were asking me "where does Marius live". So with a sign on his shed...they will find him quick...lol

The sign is about 36" wide by 19" tall. Cut out of 16 guage HR and backed with wood. Then I painted the sign with acrylic paint and sealed it with an outdoor clear rust paint.

Looks like the paint was brushed on, is that correct?
Then in order to preserve the acrylic, you sprayed a clearcoat in order to seal it from the elements?

Doug - that is a great question! I'm guessing that some or all of it might have been brushed on, it's really hard to tell from the photo.

You are most welcome! Do you have any photos of the individual pieces before you assembled it? Is this a two layer sign with the top layer metal and then attached to the wood? Or was it multiple metal pieces assembled over the wood?

The wood was painted black. Then the design was routed. Then the yellow, white and green were hand-painted where needed.

I made it in 3 layers (L1,L2,L3)and Painted with artistic brushes and acrylic paints. the L1 was spray painted
with rustoleum flat black. Then I placed the sign on 4 pieces of wood laminated together that I stained
with a minwax "golden Pecane" color. Then I sealed the hole sign front and back with an outdoor clear sealer.


That sign was so popular that i recieved 4 orders in a week's time.All references from people that picked up firewood at Marius's place...lol

The one for Marius I did as a gift to him.

I made 1 small size one 20" x 14" for $275 cdn
and 3 mediums size ones 36" x 19" like the one for Marius for $575 cdn ea


I hope my explanation help answer some of your questions.
Andre
