This page shows some recent (2019) work that I have been creating for a client in France! It’s been a big project, with a wide range of needs for various signs and markers to be used throughout a zoological park (Parc Animalier de Sainte-Croix).
The first item I made was 30 saws using my “Bear at the Cabin” design, but I used their lodge in the design. A lot of trees went into these saws! These will be used for decoration in the new lodges as well as for sale in their gift shop.
While I was at it, I also made some custom gift saws for the designs who commissioned my work. These are variations of the bear saws.
Once I got those out of the way, I began work on eight animal themed saw blades to be used as markers for specific areas in their new habitats.
These ones took a while, but were a LOT of fun to build! The next phase was a little simpler with just text cut into a blade. I made 3 signs for specific areas of the park.
Then it was time for something a little different, this is a two sided sign for their new restaurant.
The sign below is 6 feet long (2m) and made from wood which used to be a bleacher seat at our town’s ball field (yes, I was allowed to take it).
This sign “La Fuste” will be a marker for an area with a small lodge near a lake.
The next sign is to be used outside a workshop in the woods. It has a great rustic look to make it seem ageless.
And below is the last piece I made for them – it’s a logo sign hand cut with a plasma torch, and a steel rod bent for the moon.
