I was asked to do another winery sign, for Foot Path Winery, however this one in a short period of time. This one had an additional challenge which was to also incorporate a way to display the sign. I devised a simple method of dado cutting 4 x 4 posts which the sign would slot into. The result is a simple yet sturdy way to show off the Foot Path Winery name.
Thankfully I leaned a lot since the first winery sign I did so this next one was far easier and was machined in less than 1/4 of the time versus the first sign. Both sides were machined in the same day, then I moved onto the painting the next day. Two coats of paint were done per day to get to the final 5 coats of paint on each side.
Days to Complete
3/4″ Baltic Birch plywood and 5 layers of outdoor rated paint
Tools & Process
CNC machine both sides of the sign, paint with 3 colors, waiting 2 days to flip to the other side
The customer dropped the posts in concrete and put the sign up, another great project
