Hitchhikers Guide Towel Sign

Postby mud » Sun Nov 15, 2009 9:46 am

This is a little wooden towel sign I made using a wood burning thingy. I borrowed some special burning tool, but you could just as well just a soldering iron you wouldn't mide rendering a little less usable. It kind of destroys the soldering tool of your choice, so I would not recommend it for bigger projects. It's painted with the coats of water soluble varnish/lacquer on the front and one coat on the back.

The lower line of text is Swedish for "Mine" "Hers" and "Yours"

Almost as fun as burninating peasants.

Thanks for the positive comments.
Before I made this I had a little piece of paper, with the same text, taped to the wall. This looks a bit more homely :)

I guess the next logical step would be to embroid some nice, catchy towels. But I hate the thought of someone wiping their hands on stiched handiwork. Plus the back of my stitchings are not usually something I wish to display.
