Introduction: Laser Cut House Sign

Picture of Laser Cut House Sign

I was hanging out at Techshop on Friday trying to figure out what I wanted to make, when I remembered the cute little sign I saw outside of a cottage in Berkeley that said "Rose Cottage".  I had been saying before that my cottage should have a name with a cute little sign, so I decided to finally make one!

I made this at Techshop in SF!

First I started looking at different shapes for house signs.  From there I just had to decide on my text and then I put in a cute little design I liked.  

You have to decide how you are going to hang it before you laser cut it.  I knew I would be hanging it on a fence so I thought it was best to put in two small circles, one on each side, for hanging.  I just used a bit of twine tied to the two holes.

Also, the end result was about 12 inches by 7 inches.

I put on a couple layers of Polycrylic to protect it from the weather, before putting it out.

And there you have it!  A nice and easy house sign :)

I made this for my mom last summer, but I never got around to posting it. She added color with some sharpies, and it's been outside all winter (in California) and still looks great!

Ah! Really?! Awesome :)
