Next up on my to do list was a welcome sign for the front entrance. Since the pandemic started, we have seen these painted pine welcome signs pop up all over the place.

To be different, I used ash and routed the welcome letters in. I had an ash board mostly finished and just had to sand it. Once done, I attached a template to follow that my wife printed off with a font she liked. Since my letter routing jig only routes horizontally, I had to route it by hand.

Once routes I spray painted the letters black and then did one final sanding before putting on an outdoor safe finish. We attached it to the front of our home directly to the brick. Very happy with this quick project.
