Its about the joy of making something with your own hands.

Hi I’m John from John’s Tiny Workshop. I am a part time pastor and a part time sign maker. And a long suffering viking fan. It has been a great joy so far to make signs. I never thought it would be. But the moment people see their finished sign and their faces light up has turned into a reward in itself. Ill post a picture soon of what it looks like to be happy in sawdust.

All about sign making

I started making signs after seeing Oldave100 Youtube channel with Eric Rhoten.  And I fell in love with making signs using a router.  Eric has 100s of videos and makes it easy for someone who is not that talented to make wood sign creations.  Thanks Eric. and of course Vicki and Dave.

This summer out on Hwy 61 it just took off. Everyone who stopped had a unique idea.

So now I get to make all kinds of hand carved wood signs. Below are an example of the different kinds. I use mostly Cedar and pine, but I have some specialty wood like Cherry, barn Oak and Maple.
