I usually use a box of wooden blocks or large sand boxes to cut to an oblong shape or two. But when I have just one block to work with, I can use a box of sand blocks instead. I work on the sides and corners and on the tops and bottoms for the most interesting areas.
How long can a wood sign be made with wooden blocks? Can I rework it?
You can take it from beginning to end, re-wrap and fix with twine. My preference is to re-wrap or repurpose it into something like a house sign. The only real difference is the angle of rotation at the point where the block begins. In the beginning, the block could not be rotated at all. We learned to rotate the block at different sides in order to get them just right and then fix them into place. But today I’m not that particular about it. I have a lot of different types of blocks. With each type of block I get better and better at making them work together and give a good impression. A good block is always going to look and sound bigger and deeper than a piece I could make with a smaller block.
Can you do a “sign like” with them? Like I was saying – a wooden sign like a “sign like”!
Yes, I could make some wood signs that might appear like a sign like and work with wood blocks instead of a sheet metal or metal pieces.
How long can you put a sign or sign like together with wood blocks?
Depending on the angle, it can take me a good 40 minutes to do it with no stopping. Some of the first versions were done in about 40 minutes, but then I learned to do it easier and faster. I found out that more wood blocks allow me to change the angles and give them a deeper look. You can’t build a sign like out of wood blocks anymore!
I’ve had this one made for almost a year. I love it! And it’s only my fourth wood sign with wood blocks (I also made some with a metal sign). Are they hard to cut (like metal) or easy to work with? Do they have a better look?
They’re hard and they’re easy to work with. There is a special tool that creates an arc like that, but it only makes a small arc. I have my own metal cutting table, which is basically a miter saw with a built-in router table. And
