I bought this small poster from Jimmy DiResta’s shop, knowing it would be a good opportunity to make my first frame. When the poster is purposely printed crooked, there is no pressure to create a perfect frame and any build mistakes fit right in.
The wood is cut-offs from the sanding station drawer resizing. The plastic and backer board were cut from an old poster frame I had in a closet.
I experimented by using several router bits to make the frame profile and then burnt the wood with a torch to bring out the grain. I didn’t do any sanding and gave it three coats of spray lacquer.
This sign was another find at the Mio Flea Market where I got the nail puller. I’m slowly getting things for the walls of my workshop that make me smile, inspire me, or look cool (like the old golfer).
Sometimes a simple solution solves a problem. I’m usually pretty good at not over-engineering things, but a reminder like this is always good.
I topped 2 tee shots into the pond to be sure it really was deep.
This sign was next to an outside door in a boarding area of the Austin airport.

I noticed a few of these signs as I walked around Austin, TX. I figured there had to be a story. Apparently a group of peacocks has lived on the grounds of a neighborhood restaurant for a long time and a couple of years ago a neighbor began to complain when they wandered into his yard. The community flocked together to support the peacocks.
