Pony Feathers - My Shameless Plug For My Husband
My husband owns a business called Pony Feathers. He has a CNC (computer controlled) router (ShopBot) with which he can make you beautiful custom woodworking: signs, doors, boats, cabinetry, furniture, etc. His specialty are signs and plaques, but in the past he has made other things like: doors, a medallion for a wood floor, a partitioned bowl all cut in one piece, fireplace mantel, a rocking chair, burl mirrors and tables, trivets, custom fencing, etc. He loves thinking outside the box and working with his clients to make something truly special and unique for them.
Here are some pictures of some signs he has done. Most of these signs are located in and around Reedsport, Oregon because we lived there for a while. If you have visited Reedsport you probably would have seen at least one of these signs. From left to right and top to bottom: Thai sign in Winchester Bay (we made both top and bottom portions), Rainier Days in the Park sign for our local Chevron gas station, Portland General Electric Beaver Generating Station plaque made for a retiring friend at his work (the top lettering is raised, the metal is inset and the bottom lettering is carved out), Rowan's Apothecary & Cafe sign (again the leaf pattern and larger words are raised and the smaller words at the bottom are inset), Kidz Place sign (a transitional sign for a children's consignment and resale shop in Rainier Oregon. The bear and the block letters are raised and the letters at the bottom are inset. Then it was painted by hand), Beartown Carvings sign (made for a good friend of ours, Brad Sharp, that is a chainsaw carver for his shop), Pepa and Preston's House sign (a simple sign in different fonts), Mr. Beans sign (except for the letters this sign is cut out of a single piece of plywood. This was a fun one for him to design and watch his machine cut!), lighthouse sign made by my husband and I for the L.U.H. Home Health Hospice in Reedsport Oregon, large Hahn Memorial Park sign in Reedsport Oregon (did in conjunction with our friend Brad Sharp: Brian did the lettering and Brad did the faces on it), Jim Barrone Memorial Fields sign in Reedsport Oregon (also did in partnership with our friend Brad Sharp: Brian did the lettering and Brad did the faces on it), Flag and Blanket People sign (we made in trade for some dolphin/whale blankets).
Here are some pictures of other woodworking projects he has done. From left to right and top to bottom: trivet with the tiles set into a piece of wood and the design of the tiles continuing into the wood as a carved design, a Myrtle wood saddle for the a Radio Flyer rocking horse (this is unfinished), the saddle again now on the horse and finished, a burl mirror, a dolphin carved out of a gorgeous piece of Myrtle wood, an eagle engraved into a beautiful piece of Burly Maple, our son's derby cars for Boy Scouts: a serpent and an alligator, a rocking chair, a burl, a church door in Reedsport Oregon for the local Episcopal Church, and part of a dolphin fence gate. Unfortunately we do not have pictures of some of the things he has made, among them are: the fireplace mantel, partitioned bowl and the medallion for a wood floor.
Right now we only have a Facebook page for our business and would love some more likes. Please if you like what you see here give us some Facebook love. Thank you!
