I made this for my sister for mother’s day this past year, as she’s a huge Tiger’s fan. She painted it just a couple of weeks ago… didn’t help their season any, lol.

For the “D” I found a vector image of it online somewhere, blew it up in Photoshop to the proper size, printed it out on multiple 8×11 sheets and taped them together, then glued it to boards which were edge glued into a panel, and cut it out with the jigsaw and bandsaw.

This is really cool. One of my favorites. Making Out door furniture is so rewarding.

That is really cool. I grew up in Detroit and was instantly drawn to it once I saw it posted. Great work.

Not a Detroit fan and I even think these are very cool.
Well done.

Interesting, the design I used was some old Adirondack plans I had from about 10 years ago, and I just replaced the back with the Old English D slapped on.

Nice chairs! How did you get a patent using the Tiger’s logo? Don’t worry Gerry, I don’t sell these. I made just the one this past winter for my sis.

The Detroit Tigers or MLB (or anyone) do not and cannot own the rights to the English D.

Of course they do. The Tiger’s logo is TradeMarked.

Here are all the logo owned by MLB

Only as it pertains to there colors. The old English D is not Patentable. And my English D is different anyway. My patent is right there in black and white. Can’t dispute that.
