I found an old wooden oar in a dumpster. I cleaned it up, sanded it, and burned the designs by hand with a simple woodburning wand. Then I did a two-tone stain followed by a clear varnish. A gift for my wife, since she loves sailing and nautical history.
I made a shop sign for my store (this website). It is designed to look like an Astrolabe, which is a medieval devices for sighting celestial objects, for use in navigation. I based the design on an actual museum piece. I took the image, added my shop name, converted it to vector, and then made that into a vinyl sticker to use as a cutting guide. I cut it out the disks with a Dremel tool. Its about 2 feet wide. On the bottom disc, I plotted out the plansipheric projection, and inscribed it with the Dremel. I then painted and clear-coated the sign to resist rain, since it is going outside. All the pieces actually rotate, so its actually (sort-of) functional!
Business Card and Flyers
I made these business cards and mailers for my wife's maid service company. We wanted to update the style to be reminiscent of the 1950's "populuxe" genre.
