The deadlift platform...
There are many like it, but this one is mine. However, at first glance, while the wood is pretty, the platform is a bit dull. DH built if for our home gym, using Alan Thrall's plans from YouTube.
DH suggested we do a logo for the platform, as that was included in the video he had seen. We came up with a basic idea and he turned me loose on the project.
Working on the stencils. The design was a bit more complex than I had expected, and it took a couple iterations to get them done right.
A finished stencil.
The first stencil, I made the mistake of using painted on acrylic which bled under the edges of the stencil slightly. but it cleaned up ok.
I wanted to use an old western style font for the text, but alas, Win 10 does not have any. I had to make do with Playbill. It's ok in this instance, and was certainly easy enough to cut out.
Final paint applied...Midnight Mare and Blood Red Roan, for DH. Brownie points if you know where that comes from!
All I have to do now, is finish with the clear coat on top, and it will be ready for use! It has been a fun project, and I think it came out pretty nicely.
