Had the house painted this week and decided that the old house numbers should be replaced. So did a little work in CAD and came up with something.

The whole thing will be primed and then painted the trim color (a white that isn't quite white, has a touch of gray to it). Then the tops of the numbers I'll roll on the blue used for the shutters. Should pop.

All from 1/2" baltic birch ply. The chevron was cut and milled 1/16" recess for the numbers. Then cut the numbers from more 1/2" BB ply. This seemed easier and faster than trying to use thicker material and hog them out in-place.

Made a lot of progress on the giant Connect 4 game.

Making the two halves of the game using a Shaper Origin to cut out the holes and tic the corners to be trimmed square with a track saw.

Then some quality time with the bandsaw circle jig, router table and sander to make up the play discs. 5" diameter and need to get them paintable so a bit of sanding and grain raise. Rounded the edges a bit too.

Then paint the discs. Used the HVLP to hit them with exterior latex enamel paint. Fast work to paint 30 of each color. Have a pile of spare disks just in case some go missing. Game has 42 spaces so 30 is more than enough of each color.

Made up the legs and did some sanding on the game last night. Passes the play test. The trap door at the bottom is just held closed with a barrel bolt at one end. Works pretty well. Brenda didn't see my sneaky diagonal strategy!

If I have time tonight the plan is to finish sanding the game and hit it with a coat of yellow to make it look like the plastic tabletop version.

More Shaper Origin stuff. 

Simple sign for Brenda' s daughter. Found an interesting font with fonts.google.com, added it to PC and made pattern in Inkscape (alternative to Adobe Illustrator). Send SVG file to Shaper Origin and spend some time routing. Used down to 0.8mm bit to sharpen up inside corners but bulk of work done with 0.25" and 0.125" bits. Seal with lacquer, paint letters, sand and seal again.
